The Ministry of Social Affairs Responds to Case of Stocks in Tual
TERNATE (14 September 2021) - The Ministry of Social Affairs through Social Rehabilitation “Wasana Bahagia” in Ternate carried out a response to a family-based Social Rehabilitation Assistance (ATENSI) case in Maluku Province.
The case response was carried out to the beneficiary (PM) M, a 29-year-old male who is a person with a mental disorder (ODGJ) who experiences stocks in Tual City and PM. And K is a 36-year-old woman who is currently being treated at RSKD Ambon.
The assessment was carried out by the Center’s officers, Hermawanty and Emy Kaimuddin, accompanied by the Head of the Tual City Social Service along with the ranks. The officer told the family that M had been experiencing auditory hallucinations since 2012.
"While watching TV M suddenly came out like someone was calling," said M's mother. In 2013 M's condition began to appear suspicious and angry towards everyone. He often beats and injures himself. "From that moment on, we tied M's feet so he wouldn't lash out at people in the house," added the mother.
The Head of the Tual City Social Service, Mansur Latar said that K had been referred to RSKD Ambon first, while M was still in preparation. "While processing BPJS while waiting for the ship to Ambon," said Mansur.
To family M, Wasana Bahagia handed over ATENSI program in the form of additional nutrition consisting of 2 racks of chicken eggs, 1000 gr Dancow milk, biscuits, rice, green beans, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cooking oil, portex/wipol, and 2 bottles of liquid bath soap.
