HEALING OF THE NATIONS
At Aanakasaap Illua, addictive disorders and other mental disorders such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder will be treated. Greenland is not only battling the problems of addiction within their population, but also their suicide rate is amongst the highest in the world. In the aftermath of Danish colonization, the uprooting of an entire nation occurred.
There is, however, much more to Aanakasaap Illua than the Greenlandic perspective: Uprooting and traumatization due to wars and to sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, and a clash of cultures occur all over the world. They call for the healing of their consequences which are universal: addictive and affective disorders, suicidality, post-traumatic stress disorder, and a loss of traditional social cohesion.
Thus, Aanakasaap Illua will welcome in its pristine ambiance patients from all over the world who are in need of healing, helping them to find their inner balance and stand tall and powerful as they were meant to be for times and times to come. As a consequence, balance in their families, communities, and nations can be restored and peace may be born:
Greenland is the only country in the world where humans live and where there has never been war.
