Korangi Community Psychiatric Center

The Korangi Community Psychiatric Centre (KCPC) was established in the last quarter of 2011, initially funded by The i-Care Foundation. It is based on a new and highly successful model for mental health treatment – Community Psychiatry.

The Centre provides community based care where, after diagnosis, mobilizers and case workers do follow up home visits, thus providing quality care and support to the home based patient. This helps to reduce not only chances of relapse but also the cost of treatment.

In partnership with other mental health organizations like Hands, Basic Needs, PAMH and Aman Foundation, KCPC holds camps in the areas of Malir and Korangi and also provides consultation and medicines to psychiatric patients.
