Our health care model is unique in Rwanda for its extensive integration of mental health care into primary health and HIV medical care. Trained staff including trauma counselors, a psychiatric nurse, a psychologist, and peer advocates deliver WE-ACTx’s psychosocial services. We offer home visits and individual counseling for patients of all ages, as well as group counseling for teens, young mothers, survivors of domestic violence, and men living
with HIV. Medications are available for those who are referred to the psychiatric nurse who works closely with the clinical and psychosocial staff. Special attention is given to those patients with symptoms of depression and post traumatic stress.
