The present project intends to develop the model of taking charge of people with mental illness promoted by the local counterpart Center Notre Dame de l'Espérance. This center, promoted by the Diocese and managed by the Saint Camille BF Association, is the only one in the urban and peripheral context of Bobo Dioulasso to offer hospitality, treatment and the possibility for people with abandoned and wandering psychic distress to u ndertake social reintegration pathways. The planned activities aim to strengthen the synergies between this reality and the relevant services (Bobo University Hospital, CSPS related to the Regional Health Directorate) and the community resilience capabilit y, for the progressive institutional and social governance of the phenomenon. To this end, it expects to support the take-back and social reintegration activities promoted by the local counterpart with attention to the gender approach and the target's empo werment, assigning a strategic role to the training of specialized personnel with the methodological supervision of the Asuits partner for the reference to internationally valid standards and providing for the activation of scholarships and internships in collaboration with the Bobo Hospital. At the same time, the planning strategy will contribute to strengthening synergies between services for the institutional accountability of the problem in its complexity, through processes that involve the reality of t he prison (the MAC of Bobo, where vagabonds are imprisoned in inhumane conditions) and encourage policies that are consistent with the precise analysis of the phenomenon and recommendations implemented during the initiative: it is in fact expect ed to draw up a descriptive and political document to be submitted to decision makers making recommendations based on the results of a survey coordinated by the Onlus Mlal Trentino partner in the prison field and the research of socio-cultural data related to the phe nomenon carried out in collaboration with the partner University of Trieste, as well as with the involvement of relevant stakeholders at the local level. At the same time, a n awareness action will be promoted anchored to the human rights based approach for the diffusion of a renewed culture. read more close
