The What, Why and How

**Introducing Roco Paco Gulu Project: Rebuilding Resilience and Psychological Recovery in Northern Uganda**
At MBS for Mental Health and Wellbeing for Global Majority UK, we are committed to supporting mental health initiatives that make a meaningful impact. Our charity, founded by diaspora doctors and nurses from Uganda now living in the UK, is proud to announce our upcoming project aimed at rebuilding resilience and promoting psychological recovery in Gulu, Northern Uganda.
The What: Comprehensive Mental Health and Wellbeing Initiative
From **November 3rd to November 13th, 2024**, our dedicated team of diaspora healthcare professionals will collaborate with local teams in Gulu to implement evidence-based pathways for prevention, health promotion, and mental health awareness. Our initiative includes a focus on youth vocational activities to foster skill development in the community.
The Why: Healing Communities Affected by Conflict
The project, known as Roco Paco to the Lwo people, seeks to provide mental health awareness and first aid training to enhance mental wellbeing in the region. We recognize the urgent need to address the mental health challenges stemming from the devastating civil war that ravaged Northern Uganda for over two decades.
The How: Addressing Critical Mental Health Needs
Our approach emphasizes:
– **Training and Trauma-Informed Care**: Equipping local professionals with the skills needed to support mental health recovery.
– **Community-Based Interventions**: Engaging with communities to reduce stigma and promote mental wellbeing.
– **Psychosocial Support**: Providing vital resources to address trauma, loss, and social isolation.
– **Increasing Access to Services**: Working towards better access to mental health resources and trained professionals.
The Urgency: Addressing Mental Health Challenges in Gulu
Gulu and its surrounding areas continue to grapple with the aftermath of conflict-induced trauma, resulting in high rates of PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Stigma, displacement, and a lack of adequate mental health services further compound these challenges.
