Scaling Up Behavioral Health Services in Sierra Leone

I have always enjoyed travelling. I have travelled the world by air, sea, and land--each providing its own unique perspective and experience. Some of my earliest memories are of plane rides, greyhound bus treks, the rhythmic cadence of trains hastening down the track, and cramped road trips across the country. The pleasure and vacation trips were always fun, but what I enjoyed most was travel with a mission and purpose. One of my first trips of this nature was in the early nineties, when as a teenager I travelled to Bucharest, Romania to help build a church.

Eighty-six individuals tragically lost their lives and over 15,000 structures burned. In total, almost 50,000 people were displaced.
