The CLMC Evening Workshops is a program initiated by Dr. Wairimu Ndirangutargeting families and friends of persons diagnosed with a mental condition. The workshops are aimed at informing, educating, and nurturing a caring community of health practitioners, families and friends of the patient. The workshops will be held monthly, the inaugural one was held on Thursday, February 19 2015 from 4:30-6:00 p.m. at the Bustani center.

In this first workshop, the topic was “An overview of major mental illnesses”. The session was facilitated by Maryann Mugane, psychologist at Bustani and those in attendance included psychologists, nurses, patients and caregivers. Attendees watched 3 videos exploring three major mental conditions: Depression, Schizophrenia and Bi-polar. Thereafter was a discussion where those in attendance, in a supportive environment, shared their own experiences as caregivers of loved ones with the conditions, especially the challenges that come with the diagnosis. Issues discussed included the process of recovery, medication, how to better support the patient, identifying triggers to a relapse among others.

The next workshop will be held on March 12th 2015 at Bustani from 4:30-6:00 p.m. Families and friends of current or past patients are encouraged to attend.
