This initiative is part of an intervention program on the promotion of mental health and the rights of people with mental illness that CVCS together with its partners started in 2018 in Burkina Faso. Specifically, it is intended to continue and strengthen the strategy implemented with the project Renaissance - Paths of social reintegration for people with mental illness in Burkina Faso AID – 011875, AICS co-financed , and to extend it to other areas of the country. The project aims to strengthen health care for people with mental illness and their opportunities for social reintegration through the consolidation of the intervention model of the Association Saint Camille de Lellis of Bobo-Dioulasso (ASCL) which since 2014 has opened a center to recover, admit, care for and socially reintegrate wandering people with mental illness. The specific objective of the project is to strengthen attention towards people with mental illness in the Hauts Bassins and Centre (Ouagadougou) regions through the strengthening of synergy between the therapeutic centres of the Association Saint Camille de Lellis (ASCL) and public health services, a social and professional reintegration programme for people with mental illness and a strategy to promote mental health among the population and institutions. The project therefore provides for 3 levels of intervention: 1. Strengthening of ASCL treatment centres and the skills of public health service health personnel. Support activities will be carried out to strengthen ASCL treatment centres (2 in the Hauts Bassins region and a more recent one in Ouagadougou (Centre region) through structural interventions such as the construction of a headquarters for the Ouagadougou centre and an independent patient’s residence in the Bobo-Dioulasso centre and training activities for 50 health workers in the centres. Thanks to these interventions, ASCL treatment centers will be able to admit, treat and start social reintegration about 500 people in three years. In addition, a basic training programme will be carried out on the diagnosis and management of people with mental illness to improve the skills of 326 health workers (nurses and doctors) of more than 100 health facilities in 9 districts of the Hauts Bassins and Centre regions and for 20 nursing students of the Ecole Nationale de Santé Publique. 2. Social and professional reintegration of persons with mental illness. Work will be carried out to reintegrate patients with mental illness by contacting their families and involving them in training activities aimed at the reintegration of their family members. The activity of ergotherapy and vocational training of ASCL treatment centers will also be developed through the development of the agricultural activity of the CLER center in Doufiguisso where patients can spend periods learning to work in the agricultural-livestock farming sector. In addition, pathways to occupational integration into companies and self-employment and micro-enterprise projects will be carried out in favour of stabilized patients. 3. Promotion of the rights of persons with mental illness and strengthening of coordination and dialogue between OSCs working in the field of mental health and institutions. read more close
