About CapacityVietnam

CapacityVietnam is an international partnering organization increasing  awareness of mental health issues,  reducing stigma and improving community inclusion while supporting  recovery.

Our Mission

  ‘a vision for better mental heath’

By creating a vibrant community of  mental health support we  believe social, family and workplace  cultures can be strengthened and become more inclusive communities.

People recovering from mental health challenges can find independence and dignity through building their goals, resilience, capacity and job skills. 

Our Story

CapacityVietnam was incorporated on June 3, 2018, with seed capital from the two owners and One Day Funding, as well as several individual donors. After 9 years of working in the mental health sector in Hanoi and having seen first hand the devastation that mental illness has  created, the time is right  to start a recovery community and address the misunderstandings around mental health issues. Our desire is to transform the perceptions of mental health in Vietnam by  challenging the community to see people with mental illness  as human beings, and not a diagnosis.  

Our mandate is “recovered lives”  and  CapacityVietnam believe severe resource limitations, economic and social inequities can be addressed with clients lives and communities transitioned from adversity to hope and opportunit.
