WEST BANDUNG REGENCY - West Java Mental Hospital (RSJ) notes that the number of people with mental disorders (ODGJ) is like an iceberg phenomenon, where there are still many ODGJ in West Java that are not recorded.
To accelerate rehabilitation while creating productive rehabilitations the West Java Provincial Government through the West Java mental hospital presents Walagri Village (Wahana ODGJ Mandiri Service) and Crisis Center mental health services in Cisarua Mental Hospital and Graha Atma Bandung's main clinic.
Deputy Governor of West Java, Uu Ruzhanul Ulum said, the presence of Walagri Village as a way to accelerate patient rehabilitation and at the same time create productive rehabilitation.
"When they leave the rehabilitation site, in addition to being healthy, they also have the ability to fulfill their daily needs. Because in Walagri Village, they are also given entrepreneurial expertise," said Uu, in the commemoration of the 27th World Mental Health Day in West Java Province, in West Java mental hospital, Wednesday (10/23).
Meanwhile, the Director of Prevention and Control of Mental and Drug Health Problems of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia Fidiansjah stated, he gave his appreciation to the West Java Provincial Government who already had the Village of Walagri.
"RSJ must be more ready to accommodate and serve quickly so that what is experienced by ODGJ and ODMK can recover faster and show its independence," he said.
Fidiansjah stated that the regional head must continue to realize the minimum service standards in his area by preparing facilities for ODGJ according to the standards and the need for the role of the family in suppressing the number of psychiatric disorders, which is currently quite high.
"The role of the family is very important to reduce the number of psychiatric disorders, families must be sensitive and able to do early detection," he said. (Parno)
