Gede Goes to Borno

By Samira Koko

Gede Foundation, in partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is conducting a project with Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), in Borno State. 

Prior to their departure, the team had a training in identifying mental health and psycho-social support among IDPs in Maiduguri. The 5-day training with Bonnie Kaiser also included basics in research. Topics discussed included introduction to mental health, qualitative & quantitative research, ethics & mental health stigma, psychosocial first aid and involved a practice interview with actual IDPs in Abuja. 

Pictured below, are our Research Assistants right before they left to Borno State on the 13th of September, 2017.
