According to a WHO situational analysis, 30.6 million people living in Ghana are estimated to have a severe mental disorder; 2,166,000 are suffering from mild to moderate mental illness.
The treatment gap is 98% of the total population expected to have a mental disorder.
Some Ghanaians who start showing signs of mental illness will first be taken to a traditional healer, herbalist, or religious leader.
Mental health stigma is a big issue in Ghana. Problems are often perceived as spiritual and seen as punishment for wrongdoing.
There is a lack of mental health access, awareness, and treatment centers.
To reduce the pain of suffering of the people in Nkwanta who don’t have quality mental health access, Sankofa for Peace has acquired a piece of land to build a mental health treatment center
To achieve this goal, Sankofa for Peace kindly requests a donation of your choice towards our objective to fund the building of a mental health treatment center in Nkwanta-Ghana.
With your generosity, you are helping ensure life’s most basic health needs for many in Nkwanta-Ghana are met.
Your support will help empower a severely disadvantaged and vulnerable population and change their lives’ trajectory by providing better mental health treatment and education.
