Grandmother power

This little report in Nature made me want to hug a psychiatrist and a bunch of grandmothers in Zimbabwe. Dixon Chibanda is a major mover for mental health in his country. One of his long term projects has been to train old ladies in evidence-based psychotherapy. They can then use universal respect for grandmothers to give help to those who need it most, sitting on a park bench.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
