Human Rights abuse of persons with a mental health condition in Africa have become a cause for great concern.
On the 29th of March we organized the a successful 2nd Webinar by the GMHPN Africa Region.
We had distinguished speakers from the WHO, Zimbabwe and South Africa (The GMHPN CEO herself), and we also had a peer from Zimbabwe share his lived experience of Human Rights Violations while they were I'll.
After an hour and a half, we all agreed we needed more of such webinars and I in my capacity as the Regional Representative Africa, promised to organize the next one for April under the theme Stigma in Mental Health.
We are committed to sharing our lived experience, learning from other experts in the field, raising awareness, sensitizing, and advocating for better Mental Health policies and measures of implementation across the continent.
