This National Mental Health Policy marks an important milestone in Liberia's health care
delivery system, and is the first major attempt by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to
address the diverse mental health needs of our population in an integrative and holistic manner. It is based on a decentralized approach, which is consistent with the National Health Policy, and it utilizes the Basic Package of Health Services as a guiding document for health care service provision.
