World Mental Health Day

2020-10-12 15:10:53

 

World Mental Health Day is meant to showcase the importance of emotional well-being and shine a light on the issues of mental health. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity initiated a comprehensive project of improvement at psychiatric wards for children and young adults. We have already purchased equipment and furniture for 34 wards at Polish hospitals which treat children and young people with mental health problems.

 

As we want to provide comprehensive, efficient and expeditious support to the most vulnerable patients and doctors, we teamed up with the Polish Senate to hold a debate on the procedures we need to implement to improve the overall conditions at psychiatric wards in the country. To date, our charity raised PLN 8 729 830,43 in aid of psychiatric hospitals for children and young people in Poland. We have bought equipment and furniture for hospital wards across the country. 

34 wards for children and young adults received the following:

  • 798 hospital beds (equipped in mattresses and 2 sets of bed linen) 
  • 510 setees for therapy rooms 

37 wards for children and young adults received the following: 

  • 403 specialized psychological tests used to diagnose the youngest patients

We would like to consult specialists, researchers, doctors, and politicians on the best course of action regarding the conditions at psychiatric wards. We need to introduce a complete overhaul of the system, where children and young people can receive support in a comfortable, safe environment and where doctors can rely on modern, effective methods of treatment.
