Reflections for the field: Day 4

By: Dr. Florence Baingana

Today, the 6 RAs went out to the field with Mr. Musa, while I remained to train 18 MHCs in mental health and the psychosocial response. The MHCs who are posted to the ETUs indicated that every client/patient who is brought in should have a point of contact. If anything happens to the patient, like death, the HCWs call up the Point of Contact who is invited to come in and then the bad news is given to them. Unfortunately, none of the people we talked to in the community over the past two days had heard of anyone where this had happened.
