The doctors interacted with the victims and their parents to assure them of their continuous support to help them recover from the trauma associated with the accident. The psychologists engaged the players individually to get them up to speed on areas such as anxiety, insomnia, appetite loss, depression and fear.

It would be recalled, that on Saturday, 19th September 2020, players and officials of African Vision Soccer Academy, a juvenile club based at Offinso in the Offinso District of the Ashanti Region, were involved in a fatal accident that claimed seven lives, while others sustained various degrees of injuries, following a screening exercise at Afrancho, near Kumasi.
