PoMA Global
Embracing Mental Health Empowerment Enhancing Minds Transforming Ways Forward

PoMA aims to support the most vulnerable members of society, with a focus on women and children, refugees and displaced persons, and traumatized populations. With a grassroots-led approach we focused on providing community-led, accessible, culturally relevant and sustainable mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) to those in distress. We focus on the social reintegration of those receiving MHPSS support and strengthening the mental health care and social care infrastructures in conflict-affected countries, including Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Our women-led team is equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to provide contextualized and culturally sensitive MHPSS to marginalized communities globally.

POMA had been working with the most vulnerable members of Afghan society, including voluntary and involuntary returnees’ and refugees, IDPs, and transnationally trafficked minors, for over three years prior to the fall of Kabul. With the ongoing crisis, we have committed to a continued support of Afghan refugees and migrants who have left the country since August 2021, in particular those now residing in Switzerland and Turkey, where our networks are strongest. 


People worldwide experience mental health challenges

700 000 People

Suicide is a global public health problem. Every year more than 700 000 people die as a result of suicide. The majority of these deaths (77%) occur in low and middle-income countries (WHO, 2023). 

Only around 2%

Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among 15-29 year olds globally. Yet only around 2% of health budgets are spent on mental health (World Economic Forum, 2023). 

5 out of 10 People

In high-income countries, 5 out of 10 people who require psychological care cannot access the treatment they need. In low- and middle-income countries, this number rises to 9 out of 10 people (WHO, 2023).
