Being psychotic is not a choice.
A small group of persons, concerned about the
well-being and the quality of life of a group of chronical psychotic patients in Romania,
decided to initiate a plan to improve the social inclusion and the general
well-being of this group of patients.
The concerned group.
The persons involved in this project are:
Jos Gisberts, LL.M., Linne, The Netherlands
Dr.Ciprian Bacila, head psychiatrist dr. Preda spital Sibiu, Romania
Prof. Dr. Francesco Russo, professor of surgery, Rome, Italy.
Prof. Dr. Philippe Delespaul, medical faculty Maastricht university The
The patients residing in a psychiatric hospital and
diagnosed as “chronic psychotic”.
The objective is to relocate the patients from the
hospital to a number of small protective houses in and around a city in
Romania. Based on foreign research as
ultimate goal can be expected:
1. An improvement of the social inclusion of the patients.
2. An improvement of their health and general well-being.
To achieve the objective and the ultimate goal, three different phases can be distinguished.
A feasibility and sustainability study. The expenses of a feasibility/ sustainability study will be approximately be 50.00,-- euro.
In a feasibility study all aspects of this project will be explained.
Based on Dutch and possibly Italian currents project as references, the study will hold information about:
Ø Demands for the protected houses as buildings
Ø Demands about exploitation
Ø Supervision of the patients
Ø Daily activities for the patients
Ø Activities for promoting social inclusion
Ø Financial information
Ø Legal information
Ø Medical relevant information
After finishing the feasibility/sustainability study a strategy for fundraising has to be developed. If sufficient funds have been raised phase 3 will be launched:
3. Actual realization.
Depending on the situation at hand, new houses can be build, existing houses can be bought, rented and adapted, according to the demands in the feasibility study.
Current parties involved:
Sr.Preda psychiatric hospital
In the Netherlands
1. Medical faculty of the University of Maastricht https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/
2. Eurpean Charity Fund
1. ASLROMA1 in Rome https://www.aslroma1.it/
Information from Dutch and Italian organizations about the current situation of small living units. This information can be used as “references” in the feasibility study.
Research of the universities about the two objectives mention above.
1. One research program is a “patient survey” of the patients that are included in this program. The survey can be done by a postdoc as a study for a PhD.
2. For Another research program the university of Maastricht is willing to provide laboratory facilities for a scientific research program.
It is possible to determine the stress level of patients by the cortisol level in a patients hair.
By repeating this research over a long period it is possible to draw conclusions about the success of the project.
