Story

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) in Guyana

Guyana has the highest suicide rate in the world for women and the second highest rate for men (source: World Health Organisation). Three members of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) are going to Guyana for two weeks, from the 20th April 2018, to try to make a difference. The reasons why the suicide rates are so high are multi-factorial and not fully understood. However, in conjunction with The Guyana Foundation, a mental health charity, we will be training 48 people to be able assess and treat people suffering from depression and anxiety. Our aim is that this cohort of people will go on to develop an organisation similar to BABCP who will go on to develop a service, which will expand both in knowledge and numbers. At least one of us will be going back in October to monitor their progress.

This is where you come in. we are providing our time for free and, at the moment, we are paying for our own travel expenses. If you are able to make a donation it would be gratefully appreciated. Any money raised will go to cover the costs of our travel expenses and teaching materials.

In the event that we raise enough money to cover these costs any extra money will be donated to the Guyana Foundation to further their work.
