Generally speaking the work is mostly clinical. It also calls for local team coordination and training via mentorship and support. Ready to work within multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary teams. In most programmes, local teams (usually psychologists) ensure the continuity of care. Expatriate psychiatrics are in charge of:
providing individual clinical consultations, psychiatric,
participating or organising the group's therapeutic or psycho-pedagogical activities,
supporting the programme and the team by suggesting improvements in line with MSF's objectives and strategies,
coordinating the team's efforts by developing and/or improving working tools if required,
identifying national staff training needs and organises sessions in the areas identified,
organising patient referrals to adequate local facilities if needed.
Often mental health teams are composed of a pair psychologist / psychiatrist. These activities are only examples and obviously depend on the missions.
