Somaliland Mental Illness report

Somalia mental illness
Mental illness is a widespread problem in Somaliland. Some mental health experts project that anywhere from 3 to 6 percent of the population could be suffering from severe forms of mental disorders.

Mental illness is a widespread problem in the self-declared, east African republic of Somaliland. But resources to treat the problem are scarce, and society often stigmatizes the mentally ill and their families. Cathy Majtenyi reports for VOA on the plight of the mentally ill in Somaliland.
