Mental healthcare is one of Africa’s greatest challenges, but sadly, most neglected. Thanks for highlighting this need, and we can only hope that policy makers see this as important.
This is a brilliant reflection of the human psychological state. Often unrelatable, thought through over and again, disposing many out of balance…. It’s a good one Kaleef, keep it going..
