PureHealth has partnered with the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood (SCMC) in order to enhance mental health initiatives across Abu Dhabi.

The collaboration supports efforts to create a unified vision for mental health that prioritizes mothers and children as well as it reflects PureHealth’s commitment to providing accessible, holistic health services, advancing Abu Dhabi’s comprehensive mental health strategy, and improving community health outcomes.

Through the partnership, both entities will focus on establishing a cooperative framework that strengthens their capabilities in supporting mental health initiatives. In addition, the agreement will extend to cooperation in other aspects of healthcare, including prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.

“At PureHealth, we are committed to a vision of longevity that prioritizes mental wellness as well as physical health. We understand that mental well-being is fundamental to overall health, and it’s imperative that our healthcare system reflects this by providing holistic, inclusive services. Our collaboration with SCMC enables us to advocate for and deliver mental health services tailored to the unique needs of mothers and children, ensuring that healthcare initiatives are accessible to everyone in the community more effectively.”

In May 2024, PureHealth launched the Sakina platform in order to provide access to holistic mental health care.

Rym Al Falasy, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, stated that this strategic partnership is part of the ongoing preparations for the upcoming Fatima Bint Mubarak Motherhood and Childhood Forum, scheduled to take place in October 2024.

Dr. Zain Al Yafai, CEO of Sakina, said that, “This collaboration will enable both PureHealth and SCMC to extend their reach and enhance overall impact within the community, particularly among those most in need of mental health support.”

“Sakina exemplifies how specialized services, such as those addressing neurodiversity and other specific mental health needs, can be integrated into broader health initiatives. This partnership aligns with the objectives of PureHealth’s latest initiatives, ensuring that mental health care is woven into the fabric of community health services,” Dr. Al Yafai added.
