Reply To: Reflect and discuss: Prevention strategies

    The most promising prevention strategies in my context has been community mobilisation and activism which has worked so far. We conduct sessions with women and men on power and gendered norms. However the sessions are conducted separately. I also see that we could use the couple’s approach which could work better.
    Community campaigns on violence and mental health have shown promising results. Apart from that we also provide services like counselling, extended services like Psychiatric referral and Clinical Psychologist along with Legal, Police and Health referrals to women.
