MoSA Quick Response Team Handles Residents with Mental Disorders in Cianjur
JAKARTA (February 27, 2023) - Instructions from the Minister of Social Affairs Tri Rismaharini to the ranks of MoSA to respond to the problem of social welfare service recipients (PPKS) in the community, including residents from vulnerable groups.
Following up on this directive, Integrated Center “Inten Soeweno” (STIS) responded to a PPKS resident who had been suffering from mental disorders since 1995. Starting in 2013, the family had to put Yunus (42 y.o) in stocks in a shack not far from his mother's house, Osih (66), because he often had tantrums.
The family tried to do treatment, but it was not finished due to a lack of funds. Previously, residents of Kp. Sirnasari RT. 003 RW. 02 Jatisari Village Sindangbarang District Cianjur Regency was married then divorced and has one child currently working in Jakarta.
Yunus's mother is a Beneficiary Family (KPM) of Non-Cash Food Assistance (BPNT) because she lives in an uninhabitable house and is in poor economic condition, while her children support her life.
"The center intervened by educating the families who initially did not want to release stocks and took PPKS for treatment outside the area," said PB & K Team Coordinator Dede Khairufirdaos, Monday (27/2/2023).
Together with the family, the local government, Babinsa, and Sindangbarang Health Center released stocks. By riding an ambulance from Puskesmas, they brought PPKS to Marjuki Mahdi Bogor Mental Hospital (RSJ). They were also, providing operational financial assistance, Yunus' clothing, as well as nutrition, and a tripod for Yunus' mother.
In addition, Inten Soeweno Integrated Center is carrying out a follow-up plan after medical treatment to carry out social rehabilitation service at STIS and proposing Yunus as a recipient of Health Insurance Contribution Assistance Recipients (PBI JK).
