This performance audit aimed to assess whether the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Community Development, Gender, Women and Special Groups, and the President's Office - Regional Administration and Local Government have adequately ensured the availability of Mental Healthcare Services to ensure that individuals in need receive timely and appropriate Mental Healthcare Services in the country. 

The audit found that the identification of Mental Health Patients was not effectively done at the community level; Psychosocial Care and Support Services were not effectively mainstreamed into plans, budgets, policies, programs, interventions, and strategies at all levels; insufficient resources (experts, infrastructure, medical equipment, and medicines) to facilitate the provision of mental healthcare services and unavailability of rehabilitation services for skills development, community integration, and recovery-oriented supports.
