Informative workshop for carers

A MENTAL health workshop at Namoli Village, Lautoka drew about 20 sufferers, guardians and carers for mentally-challenged adults last week.

Organised by the Youth Champs 4 Mental Health, many of the participants expressed their relief at the informative discussions and materials.

"Some of these patients are still recovering but their carers have encouraged them to voice their concerns," said workshop facilitator Pene Nakaora, adding they started the workshops in 2008 after noticing that youths made up the highest number of suicide victims.

"One of our objectives is for participants to identify problems and solutions that they could work on, including discrimination, stigma and the lack of medication and address this accordingly, with necessary stakeholders."
