The Gendered Nature of Mental Illness in Nigeria.


  • This is meaningful article and I really enjoy it , it has improve my level of awareness of mental health exposure.

    • Thank you for you comment, glad you found the article informative.

  • It’s really alarming that a bill introduced 7 years ago to aid the treatment and protect the rights of people living with mental disorders is still yet to be passed. It’s alarming and awful.

    Thank you for this article. It was informative.

    • Unfortunately, our leaders have been woefully neglectful, have abused their power, and love money more than their people and country. Health Care is a basic human right, to take this long to ‘pass’ a bill, shows how much contempt they have for the voting electorate.
