ABOUT TASKEEN

Taskeen (an Urdu word meaning ‘to give comfort to’) is a mental health initiative, being led by experts or individuals who have been, directly or indirectly, affected by mental illness. We are a diverse group comprising mental health professionals, students, journalists, caregivers and individuals who are recovering from mental illness. Our aim is to serve as a platform for everyone who is passionate about raising awareness regarding mental health in Pakistan.

The backbone of Taskeen are dedicated volunteers who want to change the face of mental health in Pakistan. Taskeen was founded in January 2015 as a collaboration between the Pakistan Association for Mental Health, Humanity Initiative and CareForHealth.
