BENNO DE KEIJZER PDF

While recognizing that many specifics are different, he believes that many of the basic principles at work in the popular health movement will apply to the mental health field. After testing, discussion, and revision they will carry these reforms far and wide.

Even though Mexico has an active popular health movement and there are a wide variety of PVOs dealing with diverse aspects of community health, the issue of mental health has been largely ignored with the limited exception of the substitution of some herbal remedies for anti-depressants and tranquilizers. For Benno, this is a process of listening at least as much as training.
