Psychosocial Recuperation and Development
PRADET was established in 2000 by an Australian consortium led by the University Of New South Wales School Of Psychiatry shortly after the revolt of September 1999. It is dedicated to support people suffering from trauma due to violence; persons with mental illness; women and children who were victims of domestic violence, abuse and sexual assault, human trafficking and support for juveniles in prison.
In early 2003, the Programa Assistencia Moras Mental (PAMM) commenced, supported by CBM which subsequently became the main donor. Currently it comprised of four programmes with its main head quarters in Dili, Timor Leste and three services located in the districts of Oecussi, Saui and Maliana. A Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) Centre was instituted in early 2013 to enable individuals with psychosocial problems to develop capacity to live, learn, and work in the community with the least amount of long-term professional support thereby promoting their full citizenship. The Centre is complemented by outreach and community programmes.
