Amaudo UK is a charity based in London, which provides practical and financial support to Amaudo Itumbauzo (Nigeria) and has worked in partnership with It for the past 10 years to achieve its goal of implementing accessible, affordable and sustainable systems of mental health care in South Eastern Nigeria. The partnership also helps provide rehabilitation for individuals who have become homeless due to mental health problems or learning disabilities. Amaudo UK achieves its goals through raising awareness, training, assisting volunteers with placements at the project in Nigeria, providing medical supplies, co-managing projects and coordinating supporters in the United Kingdom.
Amaudo UK's training unit TATU strives to develop and implement a sustainable learning and training infrastructure to consolidate and improve the skills and knowledge of mental health workers. It also creats opportunities and provides training so that people with mental health problems can engage in meaningful debate and discussion about mental health and human rights issues on a personal level right through to a policy making level. TATU has worked with Amaudo Itumbauzo (Nigeria) to provide Training the Trainer courses for over 350 nurses and local authority health officials over the last 5 years. In turn the trainers have provided mental health awareness training to over 2000 village health workers so far. TATU now has a programme of making its training sustainable by providing support, developing training materials and resources for local trainers to continue creating awareness and building their training profiles, skills and knowledge.
