About Us

BasicNeeds believes that mental health is a right, not a privilege. For millions of mentally ill people around the world, this is not the case. For them, mental illness is a world of poverty, stigma and isolation. BasicNeeds transforms lives by working with mentally ill people so that together, we can build a world where people with mental illness feel proud to live in.  

Since 2000, BasicNeeds has transformed the lives of over 625,000 people with mental illness and epilepsy, their carers and family members globally.
