Rabat – King Mohammed VI inaugurated, Friday in Casablanca, a Medico-psycho-social center, a solidarity project dedicated to people suffering from psychological disorders
Carried out by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity for a total budget of MAD 7 million, this center stems from the Sovereign’s resolve to make the right to health services one of the major pillars to consolidate citizenship and achieve sustainable, comprehensive and integrated human development.
It is part of the Foundation’s action plan to support the national medical sector by strengthening the existing medical supply, improving access to health care for the poorest populations, and integrating a complementary social approach into the mechanisms of accompanying patients and beneficiaries.
As part of the local socio-medical program for the Casablanca-Settat region (2016-2020), initiated by the Foundation, the Center whose construction works were launched by the Sovereign on June 18, 2016, responds to the deficit in the medical infrastructure dedicated to the psycho-social care of psychologically unstable persons.
This center will treat mental illnesses by developing the patient’s relational and learning abilities, as well as strengthening their autonomy, their sense of responsibility and their feeling of well-being and self-esteem.
Built on a plot of 1,429 m2, this center has a medical hub with consulting rooms in general medicine, psychiatry and psychology, a community center housing halls for
