Today, as part of its Mental Health Dialogue Programme, the Gede Foundation hosted a well attended presentation on ‘Depression Disorders’ given by Dr Maureen Osuji-Ekeh, Clinical Psychologist, Karu General Hospital. Dr Osuji-Ekeh’s wide ranging presentation touched on all aspects of depression – from mild to severe and covered specialist issues such as post natal depression. After the presentation, the audience engaged in a very likely Q&A session during which one issue was made very clear – there is very little gained in keeping awareness about any form of depression (or mental health condition) ‘in the shadows’.
