  • tony  On April 29, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    Please I am a psychiatric nurse in Ghana, west Africa. I ‘ve worked with these patients in a psychiatric institution for the past few years now.
    I realized the plight of these patients in terms of inadequate funding from the government resulting in insufficient dietary, poor housing, lack of recreational resources.
    I desire to open an NGO that will help at least take care of the basic needs of these patients.
    Also to bring in other mentally sick patients wandering about in the community which the government is unable to bring in for an institutional care.
    Please could you help how I could go about them.

  • in2mentalhealth  On May 1, 2015 at 10:54 am

    CAPS provides psychosocial interventions at both individual and organizational levels, reinforcing its belief in holistic care.
    Organizational Intervention: This incliudes the provision of psychosocial services through community-wide sensitizations on relevant psychosocial issues and trainings with community stakeholders (such as health-care providers, police, teachers, clergy) and partners in development on understanding and preventing mental health issues and related human right abuses.
    CAPS also works with individual community structures to find culturally relevant ways of healing through traditional ceremony or ritual, which has been shown to aid in psychosocial recovery. Advocacy is also an integral component of CAPS intervention strategy. Participatory advocacy is used to ensure collaborative change and ownership within the community.
    Interpersonal Intervention: At an interpersonal level, CAPS provides Psychosocial counseling through, individual, family and group counseling sessions. This process is comprehensively monitored through clinical intakes, assessments, follow-up assessments and home visitation. The spectrum of clients and client issues is broad, including such issues as trauma, grief and loss, job stress, parenting issues, torture, family disagreements, prisoners, commercial sex workers, and school children.

    I am a Registered Mental Health Nurse based in the UK. I trained in the UK and have worked in various mental health settings across both statutory and private services. The idea friendship benches in Zimbabwe sounds resounding against a background of limited funding. Dixon Chibanda sounds up to speed with the programme and it is impressive but these grandmothers need people to talk to when dealing with complex mental health cases. Dixon should procure additional funding to train Mental health professionals help to work with these dediacted women. I am would be happy to be co-opted into this life saving programme Zimbabwean.
