SAMH Mobile Support Team

Our Services

Outreach

SAMH Mobile Support Team

The Mobile Support Team aims to bring mental health services to the community. Our beneficiaries include persons with mental health conditions and their caregivers, whom we reach out through home visits and out-of-centre intervention sessions.

At SAMH, we recognise a unmet need for case management and psychosocial therapeutic interventions to help people in the community. Many of the cases attended to by the Mobile Support Team involve persons who display psychotic, suicidal or violent tendencies, for whom there is limited or no accessible service in the community.

The Mobile Support Team also equips beneficiaries and caregivers with information to better manage their condition and to support reintegration. This holistic approach supports them in improving the functioning and quality of life.

The team primarily caters to regions in the West and Central, and has served over 450 beneficiaries and caregivers since 2014.

Community-Based Services

The Mobile Support Team focuses on providing these community-based services:

  • Needs assessments of beneficiaries and caregivers
  • Individualised intervention plans, case management and monitoring of beneficiaries in the community, in close collaboration with GPs or hospitals for further assessment, treatment and intervention.
  • Home visits to assess and follow up on beneficiaries and caregivers
  • Case management, care coordination and service linkages for beneficiaries to appropriate services based on their needs
  • Training and outreach to increase public awareness and understanding of mental disorders
Assessment Tools for Beneficiaries and Caregivers

The Mobile Support Team supports beneficiaries and caregivers with the use of these assessment tools:

Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) Scale
A tool based on observation to measure the psychological, social and occupational functioning of beneficiaries on a hypothetical continuum of mental health-mental illness

Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS)
A brief self-reporting tool to assess functional impairment in three inter-related domains: work/school, social and family life

Zarit Burden Interview
A self-report measure of the caregiver’s personal strain and role strain
