Creating a Workforce of Mental Health Clinicians in Liberia

Survivors of the Ebola outbreak suffer disproportionately from post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Dr. Muron, a trainer at the Phebe School of Nursing Rural Training Institute, conducts a class to educate midlevel health workers on how the Ebola outbreak has contributed to mental health issues in Liberia and how they can help respond to improve the lives of their patients. To help the communities recover from the devastating impact of the outbreak, APC has supported mental health training and mentoring of mid-level health workers.
