Abstract

The extensive conflict in Aceh and horrific tsunami disaster in 2004 have left behind an enormous physical and psychological trauma for the Acehnese people. Unfortunately, the recovery process of this trauma in post-conflict and tsunami has been proven not yet optimally implemented. The Physcosocial Needs Assessment (PNA 1 and 2) Report at 17 districts in Aceh revealed a significant increase of depression symptoms (33%)—besides other mental health problems—among people in these conflict affected areas. A preliminary study in Aceh Besar has revealed low communities’ awareness and attitude on depression. It is argued that lack of method and use of media promotion by CMHN (Community Mental Health Nurse) in preventing depression has contributed to such behavior. Through a literature study, this paper aims to identify and elaborate methods and media utilize for promoting preventive depression, which later will contribute to formulating a comprehensive program to prevent depression in a form of a module—Program Promosi Preventif Depresi (P3D). The study is carried out in two health services, Puskesmas Lhoknga and Puskesmas Kuta Baroe-Aceh Besar.
