Mission and Values

Since 2018, PoMA has been building a platform of actors from the government, not-for-profit, and private sectors, all united around a core set of values, including improving mental and physical well-being and ensuring the protection of all human rights.

In the public sector, PoMA collaborates with national and international non-profit organizations, systems, and governmental ministries to deliver humanitarian and development work to communities. In the private sector, PoMA works with various partners to create opportunities for inclusive mental health access, utilizing evidence-informed and culturally applicable therapeutic care.

Our Philosophy

At PoMA, we believe that mental health is a fundamental right and should be inclusive for all. We are dedicated to integrating all types of mental health care, from preventive measures to comprehensive treatment. Our approach includes developing robust systems, policies, infrastructures, and foundations that support mental well-being. We are committed to creating a supportive and accessible environment where everyone can thrive, regardless of their background or circumstances. Our mission is to break down barriers, foster understanding, and provide the resources and care needed to support mental well-being for every individual.
