The Joshi Project is named for our beautiful, brilliant and gifted daughter, who died in January 2020, aged 24. Her tragic, final moments came after a lifetime of struggle against deep depressions, high anxiety and punishing OCD rituals, along with the persistent abandonment and failure of mental health professionals, who did not provide the care and support she sought and desperately needed to live. 

We have no doubt that Joshi's life could have been saved had she had access to a more compassionate and flexible system of mental health care in Scotland.

The vision of the Joshi Project is to establish the “Trieste model” of mental health care in Scotland. This is a system of social psychiatry, based on a hugely successful model that has operated in the Italian city of Trieste for more than 40 years.
