We are excited about out upcoming trip! I am a public health professional and launched the Treatment Not Chains campaign with our other founding supporters a few months ago. Rachel Berger is a journalist and TV news producer.
We will be visiting mental health centers in Benin and Togo, including the new Tokan-Cotonou Psychiatraic Center that was unveiled October 15th. The center is not completely finished, but there was an urgent need to provide shelter to many patients who were stuck outside in the rain. Gregoire, the founder of St. Camille, decided to open it even though a full range of services is not yet available. Stay tuned for updates as we learn more about this inspiring group of people!
