“By the time a young person finishes school, he is basically on the street. The day centers are on the fingers of one hand.
Of course, he should be in a place where people understand him, where he has a company, a friendship where he spends his time usefully, and he might not have the time or energy to wander around the area if he were employed, “said Weiherte. .
The Riga Psychiatry and Narcology Center (RPNC) explained that not all patients with serious illnesses tend to be aggressive or attack the street. That is good news. However, such cases do occur and everyone can experience them, so you need to know how to protect yourself.
“This bravery or aggression of patients is so deceptive. When he feels counter-pressure or feels that he is not the determinant of this situation, he often fears it and runs away,” explained the Riga Psychiatry and Narcology Center (RPNC) Outpatient Care Center. “Veldre” and day hospital manager Māris Taube.
Such people feel great fear and anxiety of each other, so the doctor recommends – to keep calm, perhaps – to say something sharper, because in such situations, the patient’s behavior is mostly to blame, not nightmares or hallucinations. Giving candy or changing the subject of the conversation will also reduce the risk of aggression.
“Of course, these situations should not be ignored, because this little man is suffering, this person is unfortunate, and maybe he needs help.
Of course, it is difficult, but if a person shows aggression and there are fixed cases that he has done something to someone, then, of course, it should be recorded in the form of a police application, “Taube pointed out.
As Taube explained, several applications to the police can be a basis for contacting parents through an orphan’s court in the case of a minor and finding out what the situation is.
“If it is an adult, then look – either the social service pays attention, and then there is a deeper contact with the psychiatric service. This patient should definitely go to a medical institution at some point. Then you can get medication,” Taube said.
Bieriņi’s story is a clear proof that society’s laziness and ability to forgive sometimes know no bounds. This has led so far that people are afraid of the freedom and interests of both themselves and their children for fear of one year of youth.
Already during the creation of the story, the show received several calls that despite the complaints of the residents and finally also for informing the family, the situation has not changed and the guy continues to scare the people of Bieriņi with his behavior.
Aldis Dūdiņš, Director of the Social Services Department of the Ministry of Welfare (MoW), explained that group homes and day centers belong to the so-called “community-based services”.
“I have to say bureaucratically, as required by law – these services are the responsibility of the local government, but not that the state does nothing, and I have to say that for many years the state co-finances both day care and group housing and accommodation. funds, at least in part, “said Dūdiņš.
Dūdiņš informed that in the final phase a deinstitutionalisation project is underway, which has European Union (EU) funding for both the provision of services and the creation of infrastructure. Next year, the project will reach the finish line, and it is planned that 57 day centers with more than 900 places and 58 group apartments with more than 600 places will be created with the help of these structural funds.
