The aim of the internship is to learn about the Norwegian psychiatric system and rehabilitation of serioiusly ill psychiatric patients and to get acquainted with methods and services which can be adaptable in Hungary. These adaptable methods and services could motivate the development and extension of welfare and social services for psychiatric patients and the implementation of psychiatric services to the system of homeless care in Hungary.
Due to dysfunctional operation of Hungarian psychiatric system there is an increasing tendency in the number of patients with mental health problems within homeless people. Patients do not have access to the right health care, necessary psychiatric services, and the workers of the homeless care system are not prepared for this problem.
The intern spent time at different departments of NKS Jæren DPS, and learnt about different methodologies on the field of rehabilitation of patients with mental health problems.
