Mental health training at Ingutsheni

Ingutsheni is the largest psychiatric hospital in Zimbabwe. Located in Bulawayo, it has 700 beds and looks after people with all the major mental illnesses.

ZHTS formed a partnership with Ingutsheni to support training in 2014 and, in March 2016, Dorcas Gwata and Kate Adams visited the hospital to deliver a training update on assessing suicide risk and safeguarding to 20 mental health nurses.  The training was evaluated and received excellent feedback.
