On 10thApril 2013, MIPSTAR opened up in a small setup, a 2 room facility on the 5thfloor of Bandosge. The office space is a contribution by a philanthropist who wished to assist the initiation of a new mental health service in the country. We thank him for his generosity.
The greatest challenge facing MIPSTAR is the problem of space. The rooms to conduct therapy, counseling and assessments are very limited. It is
necessary for MIPSTAR to expand in order to cater to the growing requests for psychological Services.
The second challenge is the lack of adequately trained mental health professionals and para professional in mental health related areas in the Maldives. There is a strong need to train as Special Educators, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists etc... to work with a core mental health team.
