The aim was:
To improve access to quality mental health services at community level at the health care facilities in Borama district.

To advance de-stigmatization of mental disorders through intensified advocacy campaign and health promotion activities. Smartaddon

To develop learning environment for the students.

Because of this project, a large number of patients suffering mental illness for a long time have been  cured and re-integrated back to their normal life. The entire burden of the mentally ill is left to the family. This is costly in terms of money and manpower to the family in particular and to the whole society in general.
 Stigma of mental disorders through advocacy campaign was also reduced. Families have started to bring their patients at an early stage instead of going to the traditional healers. The integration of mental health services into primary program is very helpful and tangible. This proved that community mental health service is the best way to reach out the outnumbered mentally ill clients in Somaliland and needs to be replicated to the other parts of the country. It tends to be cheaper for patients to get mental health care and follow up in a country where mental health facilities either is in a bad shape or not existing in most of the towns.  The community program reached patients that would have never come to clinical care like chained people, people who could not afford any service. This offers good source of education for medical and nursing students in the country.
