Today, senior managers from the Gede Foundation met with members of Synapse/Reconnect, a leading private mental health institution based in Abuja whose work also extends to community outreach to raise awareness about the dangers of substance abuse, most particularly drug addiction. The purpose of the meeting was to exchange insights into the projects being run by the respective organisations and resulted in a commitment to explore avenues through which the core competences of both Gede and Synapse/Reconnect could be harnessed into potential projects for the benefit of those suffering from a range of mental health disorders, especially in community based settings.
