Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide. By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.  
International Medical Corps (IMC) seeks to address the insufficient access to mental health care services in collaboration with a local partner.  Through the local partner community-based mental health care center and their robust network of social workers, International Medical Corps seeks to increase the availability and quality of mental health care services at both the clinical and community level. These interventions will focus on three states within Gran Caracas, Miranda, Capital District and La Guaira. By building the capacity of local partner through targeted trainings, International Medical Corps will enhance their ability to provide the necessary care and interventions to those experiencing emotional distress and mental health conditions. Likewise, by supporting social workers with increased knowledge and tools, International Medical Corps and local partner will increase awareness among targeted communities on help-seeking behavior and availability of services and care.
