Innovations in Global Mental Health pp Cite as. The major purpose of this chapter is to identify and describe community-based mental health interventions in Rwanda and to illuminate their evolution and current function in preventing and treating mental health problems, while promoting healing and restorative mental health practices, especially in light of the Genocide. The chapter provides an introduction to health and mental health care in Rwanda along with offering historical and contextual perspectives of mental health services there, including discussions of Indigenous and Western medical approaches. The genocide is addressed by discussing its psychosocial implications and the emergence of trauma- and genocide-related mental health problems. Issues pertaining to the aftermath of the genocide are explicated as they relate to the following contemporary areas: the lived experiences of survivors; the increase in psychosocial, psychiatric, and substance abuse problems; and the special needs and concerns of women. The final section of the chapter details the emergence of post-genocide mental health responses, delineating the following distinct eras: the period immediately following the genocide, —, and the assistance of international NGOs; the first decade post-genocide, during which mental health care services were reestablished, continued developing, and were integrated into the larger health care sector; the second decade after the genocide, in which community-based mental health interventions flourished; and the growing recognition of the need for specialized services and genocide-specific psychotherapeutic responses, as well as for establishing sufficient education and training for local mental health professionals. The chapter concludes with a recap of major points, emphasizing lessons learned and progress made.
The mean score on the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression scale was Multivariate analysis revealed that reports of depressive symptoms that exceeded the clinical cutoff were associated with having 3 basic household assets or fewer, such as a mattress and a spare set of clothes odds ratio [OR], 1. There was an interaction between marginalization from the community and alcohol use; youth who were highly marginalized and did not drink alcohol were more than 3 times more likely to report symptoms of depression OR, 3. When models were constructed by grouping theoretically related variables into blocks and controlling for other blocks, the emotional status block of variables grief and marginalization accounted for the most variance in depressive symptoms. Interventions designed to go beyond improving food security and increasing household assets may be needed to reduce social isolation of youth heads of household. The effect of head-of-household depressive symptoms on other children living in youth-headed households is unknown.
Children in armed conflict are frequently deprived of basic needs, psychologically supportive environments, educational and vocational opportunities, and other resources that promote positive psychosocial development and mental health. This article describes the mental health challenges faced by conflict-affected children and youth, the interventions designed to prevent or ameliorate the psychosocial impact of conflict-related experiences, and a case example of the challenges and opportunities related to addressing the mental health needs of Rohingya children and youth. It is well documented that there are disparities between the mental health of war-affected children and youth and those in the general population. This article describes the epidemiology of psychosocial functioning of conflict-affected children and youth, interventions designed to prevent or ameliorate mental health problems, and a case example of current work to address the mental health needs of war-affected children and youth in Southeast Asia. We first present what is known about the prevalence of mental health problems of conflicted-affected children exposed to different facets of the phenomena of conflict experience, including child soldiers.

Use of tobacco and its products are the single most preventable cause of death in the world. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of current tobacco use and identify associated factors among Rwandans aged 15—34 years.

Data of 3, youth participants 15—34 years old who had been selected using multistage cluster sampling during the survey was analyzed. The prevalence of current smoking along with socio-demographic characteristics of the sample were determined and multivariable logistic regression was employed to identify independent factors associated with current tobacco use.
Metrics details. Depression in children presents a significant health burden to society and often co-exists with chronic illnesses, such as human immunodeficiency virus HIV. Low-and-middle income countries LMICs shoulder a disproportionate burden of HIV among other health challenges, but reliable estimates of co-morbid depression are lacking in these settings. Though depression may negatively affect adherence to HIV treatment among children and adolescents, most LMICs fail to routinely screen children for mental health problems due to a shortage of trained health care providers. While some screening tools exist, they can be costly to implement in resource-constrained settings and are often lacking a contextual appropriateness. In addition to completing the CDST, all participants were evaluated by a mental health professional using a structured clinical interview. This analysis found that depression continues to be a co-morbid condition among children living with HIV in Rwanda.
After the genocide in Rwanda, the need to educate people and establish mental health services were identified as vital aspects of rebuilding the country. As a result of the genocide, Rwanda has a severe shortage of mental health professionals while nearly a third of its general population has post-traumatic stress disorders.

Сьюзан смотрела, как фигура Стратмора растворяется во тьме шифровалки. ГЛАВА 63 Новообретенная веспа Дэвида Беккера преодолевала последние метры до Aeropuerto de Sevilla. Костяшки его пальцев, всю дорогу судорожно сжимавших руль, побелели.
Коммандер! - из последних сил позвала Сьюзан.
- Смотрите. Все прочитали: - …в этих бомбах использовались разные виды взрывчатого вещества… обладающие идентичными химическими характеристиками. Эти изотопы нельзя разделить путем обычного химического извлечения. Кроме незначительной разницы в атомном весе, они абсолютно идентичны. - Атомный вес! - возбужденно воскликнул Джабба.
Это диагностика, - сказала она, взяв на вооружение версию коммандера. Хейл остановился: - Диагностика? - В голосе его слышалось недоверие. - Ты тратишь на это субботу, вместо того чтобы развлекаться с профессором. - Его зовут Дэвид. - Какая разница?. - Тебе больше нечем заняться? - Сьюзан метнула на него недовольный взгляд. - Хочешь от меня избавиться? - надулся Хейл.
План неплохой. Когда служба безопасности извлечет Хейла из подсобного помещения и обвинит в убийстве Чатрукьяна, он скорее всего попытается шантажировать их обнародованием информации о Цифровой крепости. Но все доказательства к этому моменту будут уничтожены, и Стратмор сможет сказать, что не знает, о чем речь. Бесконечная работа компьютера. Невзламываемый шифр.

Да, я сегодня нашел в парке чей-то паспорт. Ваш номер был записан на клочке бумаги и вложен в паспорт. Я было подумал, что это номер гостиницы, где тот человек остановился, и хотел отдать ему паспорт. Но вышла ошибка. Я, пожалуй, занесу его в полицейский участок по пути в… - Perdon, - прервал его Ролдан, занервничав. - Я мог бы предложить вам более привлекательную идею.
ГЛАВА 11 Испания. Я отправил Дэвида в Испанию. Слова коммандера словно обожгли Сьюзан.
- И сразу же вернусь. Сьюзан безучастно смотрела, как он направился в шифровалку. Это был уже не тот раздавленный отчаянием человек, каким она видела его десять минут .
