‘Decentralise mental health services’

LINDA NYONDO, Lusaka
PARALEGAL Alliance Network national co-ordinator Philip Sabuni  has called on Government to decentralise provisions of mental health services.
Mr Sabuni said in an interview recently that lack of mental health specialists in different parts of the country has made it difficult for mental patients to have access to health services.
“Once we have enough mental health specialists in all parts of the country, mental patients will easily have access to the service,’’ he said.
Mr Sabuni said persons with a mental problem can only access health services in Lusaka, Copperbelt and Livingstone.
