Psychiatrists, psychologists and other health workers will set up the late afternoon of Tuesday (29), as the calls are made to the families and victims of the fire at Kiss Nightclub in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, which left 234 dead and hundreds injured. The proposal is that the professionals who voluntarily left their offices to track people affected directly or indirectly by this tragedy since last Sunday (27), define a strategy for psychosocial care for an extended period, until the trauma can be minimized.

We want to prepare for a time when few are thinking now. We have a serious situation that will generate post-traumatic stress in many people who may manifest days, weeks and even months after the trauma, explained Antonio Geraldo da Silva, president of the ABP (ABP). According to the expert, these disorders can manifest with pictures of anxiety, depression and even bipolar, if that person has a tendency to develop the disorder.

At first, minutes after the tragedy, the work of psychiatrists and psychologists volunteers was focused on supporting families who were at the fire scene, searching for information, in hospitals and in the gym in the city, during the recognition of bodies and monitoring funerals and burials of victims.

In this initial intervention has an important job orientation too. People, for example, tend to medicate black stripe remedies for family members to turn off a bit and sleep and no contraindication to this procedure actually just setting over the memory of the trauma, Geraldo Antonio explained, adding that the concern now is set up a work schedule with a schedule that can last months or even years.

Problems that may arise are increased consumption of alcohol and drugs and difficulties in personal relationships and work. Threaten not only the victims and their families, but they may affect a large part of the community of Santa Maria and nearby citie

According to psychiatrist, problems that can arise are increased consumption of alcohol and drugs and difficulties in personal relationships and work, threaten not only the victims and their families, but they may affect a large part of the community of Santa Maria and nearby cities - source many of the young victims.

We must be prepared to make these assessments with every nuance possible to be presented, explained, adding that the new strategy also provides service to the professionals who cared or even accompany victims. We are speaking of doctors, nurses, the police, the taxi driver and ordinary people who volunteered to work in that circumstance. Nobody is thinking of providing care for these people said.

The coordinator of the Center for Psychiatric Medical Association of Santa Maria, Carla Ibargoyen, said psychiatrists and psychologists who work in the state decided to form a volunteer task force that starts working from today. By the end of the day, occupational health network in the region and the Federal University of Santa Maria will define how the work will be conducted.

We will discuss how the calls are made, how and who will be treated and how we can leverage the structure of the university to conduct the work. It will be a follow up of at least 90 days, which is great possibility of being extended, she explained. According to the psychiatrist, each case will be assessed individually. The follow-up time depends on many individual factors: how people respond to trauma and treatment, if people have problems with psychological and psychiatric established, which would risk groups for pictures of post-trauma, the psychiatrist said.

Loiva dos Santos Leite, president of the Regional Council of Psychology of Rio Grande do Sul, explained that the works are being conducted jointly. In the case of public health in Santa Maria, psychologists set up an answering service 24 hours on Psychosocial Support Center City (Caps).

People who have had any involvement are looking for this service. We already have a significant demand. In the early hours, we made appointments at the gym, where they arrived the bodies and families. We set up a nursery on site and professionals began to accompany families there in the recognition of bodies until funerals and burial, told Loiva Milk. According to her, the micro teams formed to track the wounded continue work in regional hospitals.

The psychologist also explained that the teams are looking for professionals to home towns of some victims to route calls started in Santa Maria. Loiva noted that the area of ​​disaster emergency requires a specific treatment. We're counting on a support and training of professionals specialized in these services Brazilian association and support of Médecins Sans Frontières and a group of post-traumatic stress PUC Rio Grande do Sul, reported.

We will not heal the pain but want to work for the sense of loss that people can resume life as painlessly as possible, the psychologist concluded.
