Mental health problems are an issue for people living in all parts of the globe. Feelings like isolation, exclusion, and lack of their basic human rights. Especially mental health in Ghana as it is a developing country, a major unseen problem. Bad Health in Ghana is seriously damaging the lives of many people.
MEH DOG is trying to change how people think about mental health throughout the world.
Mostly it is to educate the public and make them aware of the dangers that mental illness produces. In Ghana, it is not uncommon and that’s why we are trying for people to talk about health problems openly.
The Project Coordinator, Abena Korkor also had her share of mental health issues, like bipolar disorder.
According to her sharing your own experience helps people to understand that they may also have their own mental health issues. Moreover, they become a little more sympathetic to the people that are indeed suffering. World Mental Health Day is the best opportunity to spread the cause.
During this campaign people who suffered themselves shared their experiences.
Martha says that talking about the subject with people who suffer can be a catalyst to make things better. And that’s her incentive to take part in the campaign. Her goal was to let masses out there know that there’s hope even if they can’t see it.
Bernard says that how the stigma affected him. According to him, it’s in every little part of his life. Mostly, whenever he was with his family and wanted to speak, they’d turn their face in the other direction.
Mental Health Society of Ghana (MEHSOG) is among the top non-governmental NGOs in Ghana who are working on human rights and mental health problems for the people in there and making health in Ghana a widespread concern. Ghana news has been putting serious attention on the bad health in Ghana.
