Why AMHFA Is Important?

  1. Mental health problems are a BIG issue in Africa because more than 25% African women are suffering from depression and 85% have no access to mental health treatment.
  2. Archaic myth, taboos and stigma attached to mental health problems. Negative attitudes and behaviors about mental health disorders have caused those affected to try to hide their problems and avoid getting help because of the mistreatment from the communities.
  3. Many are not well informed. Some individuals may not know how to recognize mental health problems, how to respond, or how to self-care and what treatments are available.
  4. Professional help isn’t always on hand. When these resources aren’t available, members of the public can offer immediate first aid and assist the person in finding appropriate help and support.
  5. Few know how to respond. Participants learn a five-step action plan to be able to support someone with a mental illness or who develops the signs and symptoms of an emotional crisis.
  6. Those with mental health problems may not seek help. Those individuals may not realize that they need help or may be unaware that effective help is available.
