Community-based Mental Health activities-CBM’s approach

Today, as part of the Foundation’s Mental Health Dialogue Programme, Gede hosted a talk given by Dr Emeka Nwefoh, Mental Health Advisor at CBM Nigeria ( Dr Nwefoh’s presentation focused on the challenges in designing and implementing community based mental health programmes and resulted in a lively Q&A session. 19 civil society organisations attended the presentation and concluded with a strong agreement that the Dialogue Programme will develop into an important ‘calendar event’ for all organisations interested not only in mental health per se, but in underserved and stigmatised health burdens in general. The next Mental Health Dialogue Programme presentation will be delivered on November 12 2014 by Dr Uju Agomoh, Executive Director of PRAWA, who will talk about the rights of those incarcerated in prisons.
