Abstract

Access to rehabilitation centres that cater to addiction and mental health challenges remains low in Uganda. For over 44ml people, there's only one national referral mental health hospital. This film presents how addiction and mental health challenges are dealt with in the African Traditional Society. The main message is that mental health challenges are not to be feared, mental health is simply a state of mind that we all need to keep healthy if we are to thrive in society.
