Mental health training in Somaliland - Day 19

 Tuesday 8th October

The second day of the TOT training goes ahead and today I am relieved to find out we have a working projector. Each day we set the students specific tasks and today they had to prepare and teach a ten minute session about psychosis/schizophrenia. This they did using Powerpoint. They are a strong group and I hope they are beginning to realise what a rich resource they can be for each other in the future. Today we also visit the mental health ward, mainly as a means of outlining how one could introduce a ward to students when teaching.  Tomorrow a participant in the group will lead us on the ward and use this visit to experience clinical teaching.
