Thisexplains why traditional healers and exorcism practices are widely used to treat mental health illnesses in Congo. Of great concern is that thereare currently no mental health hospital in eastern Congo or training programmes for psychiatrists or psychologists. But we are helping to changethis because we can no longer afford to ignore the reality that mental health is an essential part of overall health.While much attention from Non-Government Organizations,have been focused on meetingthe basic needs' such as food,shelter and some physicalillnesses of the local populationin DRC, these efforts are oftenundermined by the growingunmet mental health problems.The local population, especially,women and children areconstantly haunted bypsychological and emotionalscars that are not treated nor acknowledged due to lack of awareness about mentalillnesses and mental healthsystem.That's why the need for amental health center in theterritory of Uvira isoverwhelming.For almost two decades, eastern regions of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) arestill plagued by violence as various rebel groups continue to terrorize the local populations CRPU aims to enhance the quality of life for individuals in territory of Uvira by servingas a community resource for the understanding and treatment of mental health andsupporting victims of sexual violence and their families and loved ones Unfortunately, those most vulnerablepeople live in the territory of Uvira inSouth-Kivu Province where peopleare still not able to access mentalhealth services. Mental illness sufferers are shunnedand isolated with no access to anyform of psychological or psychiatrictreatment, unless they seek outexorcists and other spiritual healers. With your support, we are buildingthe first Psycho-SocialRehabilitation Center  ( CRPU ) in territory of Uvira tohelp address the long-overlookedmental health issues that affectmany people in eastern Congo. http://www.crpduvira.org/Pages/default.aspx (1 of 2) [9/15/2013 6:05:31 PM]  CRPDU - Uvira Mental Health Services The Center will offer specialized rehabilitation services to promote the social integration of individuals( children, adolescents, sexual violence victims or other adults ) who are experiencing mental health problemsthat significantly interfere with their daily lives while providing support to their families and loved ones. Uvira is part of eastern Congo where gangrape has long been used as a brutal weapon of war. The territory of Uvira is also often used as a launching site for armed conflicts in Congo,including the most recent tragic conflict that claimed the lives of more than 5 million people We are building strategic partnerships to move forward with phase II    Those interested in learning more about the launched construction are encouraged to contactMr. Jean-Paul Magu by phone at + 243 99 411 6778 or send an email to the followingaddress: contact@CRPDUVIRA.org   http://www.crpduvira.org/Pages/default.aspx (2 of 2) [9/15/2013 6:05:31 PM]  En Français UVIRA PSYCHO-SOCIAL REHABILITATION CENTER CENTRE DE READAPTATION PSYCHO-SOCIALD'UVIRA (CRPU) Home   Français    About Us   Services/Programs   Donations   Recovery   Partners   Who We Help   Resources   Uvira   Mobile Teams Contact Us   Cliquez ici pour visiter ce site en Français   http://www.crpduvira.org/Pages/Francais.aspx (1 of 2) [9/15/2013 6:05:34 PM]  En Français   Those interested in learning more about the launched construction are encouraged to contactMr. Jean-Paul Magu by phone at + 243 99 411 6778 or send an email to the followingaddress: contact@CRPDUVIRA.org   http://www.crpduvira.org/Pages/Francais.aspx (2 of 2) [9/15/2013 6:05:34 PM]
