Preventive Mental Health Project

Preventive Mental Health Program Evaluation from  Dr. Saltuk

What was the aim and the goal of  the protective Mental Health study ?

The purpose of Preventive Mental Health Project, to identify the spiritual needs of children, psychological profiles, and demonstrate the steps here to throw forward for the resulting consequences. Basically, we think we could make the most important part of it real. However, it is not until the end of a continuous process. 

What we did ?

First of all, the recipe made ​​in the organization of a spiritual. What does this mean, training, rules and what is required to be next to an implicit definition of life, emotions, and private lives were able individual differences.

Recruitment emotions, individual differences in crisis management enters naturally more pronounced and the beginning of the study. Each week you take control of crises occurring in varying degrees, but more importantly, tried to understand. This makes the organization more stable over time.

There was a significant reduction in the number crisis. Thus, we passed to the next step. In short, the organization's chaotic, fragmented, the bleeding came from a state of mind as a whole. We have both emotional and intellectual burden of the organization that created a framework that we called it spirituality.

As a result, this reduced the number of children living in crisis. Trainings in a chaotic way were put into a streamline. Children go to school in 12 different schools gathered to 5. All psychologists are interested in the education of children at the school for one to one with the crises in much reduced circumstances. (Escape from school, parents to send their children to collect signatures, etc ...) Social adaptation of children raised outside the organization.

Studies of children with so-called quiet hours to spend time studying, they were held for periods of time appeared to be under control. Each child created specific academic field. Every child has developed working models specific to her current mental sub-structure determination. Summary of each child rather than force him to study posited the right thing whatever it was done.

I do not think an increase is usually more successful because they are lessons for the class children were removed from review agencies' children. Now here we are in a much more realistic. Border or slightly retarded child what to do and we know that should be taking note.

Weekly visits follow with the children taking psychiatric treatment have completed many unnecessary medication. 56 In 2006, the number of children using psychiatric drugs these days (2010) 14 landed.

Was a change in personnel as well as children from head to toe. First, we found out that staff mental profile. Hiring and assignments, we have these reviews become routine. Thus, increased quality of personnel and organization, especially through spiritual personnel were excluded. (Conditions that may be traumatic for both children and the staff at the front of the crises being effective in reducing  I think.) There are many things to be done on this subject, but at least serves a staff of more robust infrastructure. In addition, these cadres are subjected to continuous training. That part of spiritual training, we are organizing this field: spiritual growth, attachment, etc ...

Relationships and bring the game to TV by solving problems become commonplace among children and staff as well as relations between them is quite progress of each group were recorded. Gossip, blame, defensive attitudes, pathological mechanisms, such as exclusion of the less commonly used now, I think.

We can not hold still mourning after the institution of separation, but at least the editing of farewell parties routinely provided for children to be transferred.

Volunteer visits were controlled. Volunteer at least as contact visits we've made it even of all ages to visit every day, and only one group was limited to 15 minutes one day a week. Flower and who knows who has played the children exhibited as a spectacle, something stuck in the leg relationship with someone who wants the child wishes to children who have provided an accurate conversion.

Our next step is left to care as a spiritual rehabilitation of severely damaged children.

Taking part in the organization's intentions for achieving all of these employees need to know. We reveal the intention of this work and its positive relationship with and ideas that help the transformation. Find a path to the rest of the children and staff. Everyone brought past the shadow of the load a little more traumatic 'live' continues to live at.

As a result, everyone is trying to live in a way.

Time-related criteria and diagnosis for the child experiencing difficulties observed.

Game / living space observations will be carried out routinely at regular intervals. In addition, when a problem occurs more often as a diagnostic routines can be made longer periods of time.

Family calls;
Family because of the importance of both genetic and environmental factors are decisive in the development of spiritual life.
