In the Lebanese context of care for patients suffering from mental disorders, a large number of people do not have access to healthcare because of the financial difficulties and the lack of private insurance coverage for such diseases. The “Association francophone pour les malades mentaux” or AFMM born in July 2015, has financially supported the hospitalization since May 1, 2017 of more than 83 patients partially or totally. Similarly, free consultations are provided weekly. Moreover, with six 30-second films each, published last year on our Facebook page as well as on our sponsor's page and six comics this year of 12 pages each intended for schoolchildren and students, the AFMM fights against stigma regarding mental illnesses, sending messages to reduce the taboo surrounding such diseases and to recognize these diseases and to have the courage to seek help. The financing of these films and comics was done through a mobile phone company in Lebanon. In addition, the daughter of the President of the Republic participated in a television spot for the AFMM, to encourage the patients to go see a specialist and give them a hope of healing. Finally, the AFMM takes care of the families by trying to group them together and organize outings and dinners for people suffering from mental disorders and not having the financial capacity to have a time of entertainment.
