Ep 19: How Start Up NGO, Talk Naija Is Taking On Mental Health in Africa

Talk Naija - Destigmatization of Mental Illness in Africa

As the first of three series on Mental Health In Africa, we invited the ladies of Talk Naija team an NGO led by Chinomso Nwachuku to talk about their work. Talk Naija is an organization committed to the de-stigmatization of mental illness in Nigerian communities all over the world. 

In this episode, we talk about the importance of having and utilizing the right language when addressing the topic. They share the importance of seeking help, some signs and indicators to look out for and how to be a support. We wrap up with this important topic of Mental Health in Africa by touching on the importance of working within existing structures on the continent. 

This was a truly enlightening conversation, we learned so much during the our hour with the Talk Naija ladies and hope to have them back on the show.
