This year, the peculiar social architecture of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic serves to further highlight the interconnections between mental health disorders, physical health, and the general condition of the society. The impact of the pandemic has exposed the deep inequalities, ignorance, and deepening levels of neglect and poverty experienced by many, causing further mental distress and vulnerability.
This sad situation is felt more starkly in low and medium-Income countries such as Nigeria where there is an urgent need for increased workforce of consultant psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, and psychosocial experts.
Join us on Saturday October 10, as we speak up on the issues in line with this years theme:
‘Mental Health for All – Greater Investment, Greater Access.’
