Assessment of mental health policy in Ghana, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia: Faydi et al. Health Research Policy and Systems 2011, 9:17
Our latest summary is interesting but quite ‘high level’. The next summary will be topical and rather 'lighter' again.
We cover an assessment the mental health policies of Ghana, South Africa, Uganda.
We’re all stakeholders in the mental health system and should be willing to be get involved with developing policies however, we're not experts on producing policies so we might need training. In fact when the new Mental Health Act implementation comes on each Region and District will require mental health leads so some of you might need expertise in this sooner than you were expecting.
As you will see, the country policies inspected in this survey could have been better. It’s in our hands to help improve this for the future
