Medical workers of Quang Nam province participated in the event

This event aims at enhancing skills for caregivers who have previously been trained in mental health care for people with disabilities. In addition, this event acts as a forum where groups of caregivers can exchange experiences regarding this field. This helps family members to relieve anxiety and negative emotions so that they can better apply the skills they learned in supporting people with disabilities to overcome physical pain as well as psychological difficulties.

Caregivers clubs

Participatory activities e.g. role plays, exercises for skill demonstration, and Q&A have been maximized for better interaction, besides stories sharing session. The peer counsellors and caregivers play a key role to organize such events and they are all happy about their active engagement. The representatives of the managing organization NACCET also gave compliments and encouraged the application of this model to the next phase of Inclusion 1.
