Dear Prof. Dr. H.M. Syamsulhadi,
President of Indonesian Psychiatric Association,

Please extend our condolences to the Indonesian Medical Association and Indonesian Psychiatric Association for the earthquake disaster that had a devastating effect. Please let us know how Psychiatric Association of Turkey (PAT) support can be given to our colleagues in Indonesian Psychiatric Association.

In Psychiatric Association of Turkey, we established a special task force after Marmara Earthquake as Disaster and Mental Health. In Disaster and Mental Health Task Force past eight years, we have been involved in treating disaster victims, from their initial presentation in the early response, to treatment for chronic PTSD. We have a great deal of experience in using different psychotherapy and medical treatment.

If there is anything that we can do - from sharing our experience, to offering training - we would gladly do so. If you send us your address we can send you back any written material you will deem necessary both for public and professionals use, if and when you let us know.

Sincerely yours

On behalf of Psychiatric Association of Turkey

Prof. Dr. Sahika Yuksel
