Bringing WRAP and Mental Health Awareness to Ghana
Release Date: 02/28/2013
We end our series on the 2nd Annual WRAP Around the World with a look at WRAP’s future in Ghana. WRAP stands for Wellness Recovery Action Plan. There are 22 million people in the African country. But mental health services are dire. Only 3 psychiatric hospitals and roughly 12-14 therapists are available to those in need. Inhumane treatment of people with mental illness continues to be a serious issue.
Host Jenee Darden speaks with WRAP facilitator Wali Mutazammil. He is working to bring hope and mental health awareness to his country through WRAP. Mutazammil is a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran and CEO of Transformational Development Consortium.
