Dominica Medical & Mental Health Support (PGB) Resiliency Mission Trip


Disaster Relief Medical and Mental Health Resiliency & Sustainability Mission Trip 

Regional Area Focus: The ravaging winds and waves of the hurricanes that ripped through the Caribbean left not only extensive and devastating damage to physical structures but also trauma born of the loss of familiarity, homes, friends, and family. Maslow developed a model of hierarchy of needs, indicating that in order for people to achieve feelings of love, belonging, esteem, and self-actualization; their basic safety and physiological needs must first be met. Given the major trauma and loss sustained on the entire island of Dominica, MOHIM Inc., in collaboration with the East Caribbean Conference of Seventh-Day Adventist is leading a group of mental health professionals such as clinical psychologists, and clinical social workers to lend aid to those who have endured this major trauma. They will focus on helping to strengthen resiliency in the people of Dominica to help ensure their sustained mental health for the weeks and months of rebuilding that is yet to come.
