PoMA Global
Embracing Mental Health Empowerment Enhancing Minds Transforming Ways Forward

PoMA aims to support the most vulnerable members of society, who are often marginalized, with a focus on women and children, refugees and displaced persons, conflict environments, and trauma-affected populations. With a community and population-led approach, we provide accessible, culturally relevant, and sustainable mental health services to those experiencing psychological symptoms. We emphasize the holistic functionality of individuals and communities to create enabling environments and facilitate the reintegration of those receiving support. Additionally, we strengthen the mental health care and social care infrastructures in conflict-affected countries across many regions globally. Our collective interdisciplinary -led team possesses the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver contextualized, culturally applicable, and evidence-informed mental health services to governments, communities, families, organizations, committees, systems, and individuals worldwide. We address multifaceted challenges and respond to needs to ensure conditions and cycles do not repeat, giving people opportunities to seek support and help.
