The Missionary Institute

The Missionary Institute ( Summer School is a very special place for young doctors to learn about Global Mental Health, intercultural communication, tropic diseases and other interesting topics. I had an engaged, interested and well informed audience of 25 young medical practitioners when I shared about experiences and insights from our work in Sierra Leone, especially about our work with PROSOCIAL ( I was delighted and honored to be invited to teach. In the evening we discussed with experts how we can deal with distress and trauma when people come as refugees. Thanks to Prof. August Stich, his wife Dr. Eva-Maria Schwienhorst, both very experienced in international medical work, and all the others who create this safe environment to learn. Have a good weekend everybody, Beate
