Mental Awareness Talks
When it comes to health & well-being, we are tailored to think, physical health. However, we never consider our mental health; how it affects our psychological, social, and emotional well-being.
In Nigeria, 30% of its citizens suffer from Mental Illness (i.e. 5.7 million individuals). Most Mental Health disorders develop before age 24; more than half of these individuals will go untreated.
1 in 5 citizens will experience a diagnosable Mental Health Illness, every year. Respecting and treating Mental Illness like we do other medical/physical illnesses, is the first step to improving one’s quality of life.
