World Health Day 2017

A World Health Day event organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) took place at the E. S. Grant Mental Health Hospital, the only mental health hospital in the republic of Liberia. The hospital received a generous donation from WHO, including mattresses, bedsheets, sanitizers, garbage disposal cans, toiletry, etc. We joined representatives of local and international NGOs, alongside government agencies and ministries to discuss this year's theme: "Depression: Let's Talk."

Did you know? Approximately half of people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) also suffer from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). At Second Chance, we make sure the treatment curriculums we evaluate for PTSD in Africa also addresses MDD. We are here to guide and equip other NGOs working in post-war settings to make the best evidence-based treatment choices.

Support us to continue improving the quality of mental health services for communities impacted by war. Every dollar counts.
Thank you for your support!
