Our association commit and act e.V. brings psychotherapeutic support to communities in need and especially people with a history of trauma in Sierra Leone, as well as Uganda and Liberia.
War, poverty, abuse and the recent Ebola epidemic have significantly affected the Sierra Leonean people. Through trauma and loss people can lose their sense of meaning, lose their feeling of identity or place in the world and develop ongoing depressive, anxiety and relational problems. Our NGO focuses on building hope,giving individuals and communities psychotherapeutic strategies to better enable them to cope with their current difficulties and focus on a valued life direction.
The goal of commit and act is to build a sense of trust again in the people we work with. To help individuals find the courage to rebuild their lives according to their own vision and values. Our local professional therapists counsel individuals and community groups. Additionally, commit and act trains psychosocial helpers in effective methods of psychotherapy and support them through regular supervision to help educate other regions in need of health promotion, health education or psychological support.
