Until the Outpatient Clinic was established by Children for Tomorrow in summer 2009, no child and adolescent psychiatric or long-term psychotherapeutic services existed in the entire region of Northern Uganda. The outpatient clinic is staffed with a local psychiatrist and a psychologist who provide individual and group psychotherapy. The project is based on the experience and concepts Children for Tomorrow has gathered in other psychotherapy projects in Africa.

The Clinic also serves as headquarters for outreach projects for internally displaced persons in the refugee camps. These are mainly psychosocial group programs such as art, theater, and photo groups, psycho education and conflict resolution training. When children show psychiatric symptoms, they receive treatment in the weekly psychiatric and psychotherapeutic consultation hours that the CfT staff offer in the camps.
