Dr Fatema Musa, Head of the Mental Health Programme at PHCC, said the availability of psychological therapies in primary health care brings much needed services closer to patients, saving them a visit to hospital to receive these services. With the opening of this support clinic, patients 18 years old and above across the country now have access to primary psychological therapies.

The newly opened Al Wajba Health Centre delivers confidential primary care psychological therapies to patients already registered at a Health Centre. Patients can be referred by a physician to the Support Clinic. If you are not yet registered as a patient at a Health Centre, you can visit the PHCC website through this link: or you can go to your local health centre to complete the registration procedures.

The Support Clinic at Al Wajba Health Centre delivers a range of psychological therapies in a safe environment such as one-on-one cognitive behavioural interventions to address a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, or bereavement.

Basically a wellness centre, Al Wajba Centre opened in May this year, and provides comprehensive health services through family medicine clinics, which includes treatment of non-communicable diseases, follow-up treatment for pregnant women, post-partum check-up and periodic immunisations. The centre also has its own laboratory, pharmacy, radiography and ultrasound, and physiotherapy services.

Al Wajba Health Centre also has other wellness services that focus on health promotion, such as gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam and massage services. The specialised clinics are equipped with the latest equipment.

Support Clinics were previously established at Rawdat Al Khail, Leabaib and Al Thumama Health Centres.
