3 Out Of 10 Nigerians Are Mentally Sick — Reps

House of Representatives has said that 3 out of every 10 Nigerians have one form of mental illness or another.

Quoting the World Health Organization statistics, the House added that over 20,000,000 Nigerians were currently suffering from various degrees of mental illness or disorder without psychiatric health care.

To this end, the House mandated its Committees on Health Institutions and Healthcare Services to liaise with the Federal Ministry of Health towards improving mental health facilities around the country and further carry out serious sensitization of Nigerians on this issue.

It also asked the Committee on Health Institution to explore the modalities of liaising with stakeholders in the health sector to promote, educate and sensitize Nigerians on mental health.
