Hope is where the heart is: Building a Mental Health Treatment Center

The Problem

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 form 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.
