Ep 20: Mental Health- How Exploring Your History Uncovers Necessary Truths, Maame Adjei
This is the continuation of the Mental Health In Africa series.
In this episode, we invite Actress/Producer/Filmmaker Maame Adjei from Girl Going Places TV & An African City to talk about her upcoming documentary tentatively called "Do Not Mind Me" which focuses on Mental Health in Ghana.
The documentary which is still being shot was inspired by the presence of Mental Illness in Maame's family. We talk about the stigma of mental illnesses on the continent and the lack of infrastructure for those who suffer from this.
We discuss the responsibility that we are tasked with as young people to be brave and take on the oars of providing illumination of mental health by way of education and advocacy.
Maame was such a joy to talk to, she is a true badass and brave spirit. Feel free to ask her questions and reach out to her if you are interested in her work, you can reach her on:
