Making a difference

The recovery of the people we serve, and the quality of life for their families and communities, depends on BasicNeeds. We depend on you. Your gift funds aspects of our current work – community-based treatment, livelihood support, social services – but it also builds capacity of others to deliver high quality care and to reform mental health policies and practices.

Your support will make a difference. When you contribute to BasicNeeds, your money goes where it has the greatest impact.

$10 Buy medication for a person suffering with schizophrenia (one month supply).
$50 Train primary care staff to diagnose and treat mental illness (two days).
$300 Start a business for a self help group of recovering people desperate to be productive and valued in their community.
$600 Sponsor a mental health camp in an area where there are no clinics.
$5000 Initiate BasicNeeds work in another district of a developing country.
