What is your practice philosophy? To touch lives everyday by making a difference in patients and their families, thus putting a smile on their faces
What are you passionate about? And why? Passionate in helping my community by creating mental health awareness and donating to the less privilege. Mental health is still considered a stigma in Cameroon.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I became a provider to advocate for my patients and their families, create awareness about mental health which is just like any other disorder: diabetes, hypertension etc. We need to end the stigma on mental health.
I knew this was my career when I saw how mental health patients were treated in my community like they were less of a human. I was touched and wanted to make a difference, by giving them the best so they can live a normal life as much as possible, be respected and treated with dignity.
Something I have learned from my patients is: I learned to listen, be nonjudgmental, for we all have our stories.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): Talking to patients and their families that it’s alright to discuss about their mental health so they can get the best help that they need thus encouraging others to come forth.
My personal health goal is: Try to eat healthy, take walks with my kids
