In SIERRA LEONE we have been working for several years in one of the poorest areas of the world, marked by deep wounds: a long civil war in the past and, more recently, the most serious Ebola epidemic ever known. We choose to take care of the most fragile part of this population: children and youth. Our project aims at creating a model of clinical, rehabilitative and educational intervention in Sierra Leone as far as youth mental health is concerned. Starting from my own experience as a Head Physician of Clinical Psychology in Italy, and thanks to the collaboration of many other volunteers, we are carrying out this project together with a local staff trained by us. Our primary aim is to work in terms of SUSTAINABLE cooperation, therefore contributing to create projects that will be carried on independently on a short and middle term perspective. Moreover, it has been years since we first activated our research projects concerning emotional trauma from a neuro-physiological point of view, thanks to our collaboration with the Department of Neuroscience of the University of Parma (Italy).
