mental health - traditional medicine


The incredible strenght of mentally ill people and their disconcerting fragility have made it possible for GRT to be involved in mental health projects to support these people and their families in South America and in the Horn of Africa, particularly in Somalia. 

With regard to traditional medicine instead, GRT aims at finding effective methods of support for a way of thinking and a therapeutic practice which are different from the Western one. 


GRT's presence in Nicaragua has been focused on projects related to child protection and mental health issues. In particular GRT staff delivered some training to mental health personnel in order to make people understand the importance of taking care of mental health patients and not to emarginate and discriminate them.
