“Are you mad?” “Your head is not correct!” “Possessed by the devil!”
These are phrases often spoken within the Nigerian culture. Although these words are sometimes said harmlessly, they are commonly not well informed. Information on mental healthcare in Nigeria is lacking, and there is significant neglect and lack of a good understanding of mental health issues and healthcare in Nigeria.
While well-established treatments exist internationally for mental health, and the World Health Organization (WHO) continues to work to make mental health a global development priority, there is still a lack of information in Nigeria regarding mental healthcare.
This webinar will explore the current state of mental healthcare in Nigeria; the state and role of research on mental healthcare development and delivery in Nigeria; the workforce situation in mental healthcare delivery in Nigeria; and the role of Government in mental healthcare delivery.
