Believe Mental Health Care (BMHC) is a community-based organization registered with the Department of Social Development in April 2019. BMHC started as a means to promote education and culture.
The Believe Mental Health Care headquarters is in Eldoret, Uasin-Gishu County, Kenya.
BMHC is also committed to improving the mental and psychological well-being of young people (ages 10 to 35) and women in Kenya.
We are committed to providing intersectional mental health care programs that are environment-based and culturally relevant to our beneficiaries.
We are a women-led organization implementing interventions and preventive programs, exercises, talks, content, campaigns, and social studies on mental health and culture.
As a feminist organization working from education and cultural foundation, we are responding to individual, community mental health, and cultural stereotypes – myths, gender, and social norms as these community factors drive mental health.
With a diverse community in terms of age, ethnicity, disability, gender, and sexual orientation, our programs focus on inclusion, empowerment, and social change education.
Since BMHC’s inception, we have curated programs around well-being and counseling. BMHC not only offers services and programs but also purposes to create and contribute loudly without shame.
We believe that feminist revolutions depend on our mental health and dismantling colonial filters – logics of power and structures ensure health-seeking behaviors and shifts are adopted at home, within communities, and in the state.
