OLIc MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS, assessment AND TREATMENT

MENTAL HEALTH SITUATIONS IN NIGERIA

 

According to the report from federal government of Nigeria, 3 out of every 10 Nigerians suffer from mental disorders. Nigeria is country of 200 million people with 60 million people suffering from mental disorders according to the Federal Ministry of Health.  There is lack of mental health awareness in the country. People are suffering from mental disorders are not aware of the illness.

Lack of awareness leads to lack of treatment.  People who suffer from mental illnesses do not seek treatment and it has to dysfunctions in daily life, work, schools and relationships. We at Oasis of Love International Center create mental health awareness in schools and communities. We educate and train also the teachers to recognize mental illness in school children. We assess and treat mental health illnesses in children and youth.
