I grew up stressed by long treks to fetch water, catch public transport and struggle with psychosocial needs.The value of hard work, honesty and integrity were traits in-grained in the village. Perhaps this is where community mental health intervention became real. For twelve years this became an experience: Engaging in vulnerability support. The blessing of family, a daughter with special needs, struggle with stigma, energizes one to being non judgemental. Our vulnerability can be a strength. Consequently a client -centered approach and motivation interviewing are some favorite tools of trade.
