One thought on “EBOLA IN SIERRA LEONE – MENTAL HEALTH RADIO PROGRAM”

  1. The Mental Health Radio Program was a very good initiative centered around sensitizing people about Mental Health and the myths around mental health. I am suggesting that funds be provided to conduct routine radio programs at district levels (14 districts), so that people at the grass root will be well sensitized. This will create more awareness about mental health and allow people to “come out of shadow” to access mental health services within their local districts
