and consultative assistance
from the foreign staff, whose
numbers now include myself
and a psychiatric nurse from
England.
Patients include victims of
domestic violence, people who
are extremely destitute and
have nowhere else to stay,
depressed patients, psychotic
patients, and patients with
various physical ailments
(like malaria), which affect
their state of mental health.
Basically, they are people
with the same sorts of pro-
blems seen in a psychiatric
emergency setting in a large
American city.
However, some of the en-
vironmental factors which
cause these problems are
more severe here than in
most parts of the U.S. There
is widespread poverty, com-
pounded by years of war dur-
ing which most people en-
countered some type of
traumatic experience. There
is also uncertainty regarding
the future, which is a great
stress to people living in the
camps, especially at this time,
as repatriation to Cambodia
is approaching.
People who have not been
farmers for 12 or 13 years are
going to return to farmland
that they are afraid may be •
loaded with land mines left
over from many years of war.
Many still do not know
whether or not they have
family surviving in
Cambodia.
Perhaps most importantly,
people are afraid that they
will return to land that is still
not at peace.
My job has been mostly to
help patients who are ex-
tremely depressed or
psychotic and could benefit
from Western medication,
much of which was passed out
quite indiscriminately before
my arrival. We foreigners
tend to get involved when
help is needed in obtaining
rice rations, mosquito netting,
or some other intervention
with UNBRO (United Na-
tions Border Relief
Operation).
The most interesting part of
my job has been the oppor-
tunity to see the refugee
situation firsthand. I have
read several books about con-
centration camp life during
the Holocaust, and find that
thre are a lot of similarities in
the refugee camp.
Granted, the situation, at
least now, is not as severe.
People are not being
slaughtered, and they are not
starving to death (though
many were tortured and on
the edge of starvation during
Kmer Rouge times). But a
basic lack of freedom, and
