The recent visit to Ghana by the United Nations expert on torture highlights the need to end abuses against people with mental disabilities. The government of Ghana should take steps to implement the 2012 Mental Health Act before the end of 2013.
The UN special rapporteur on torture, Juan Mendez, in his visit from November 8-14, expressed deep concern about the state of Ghana’s mental health care system, and called for urgent reform of both psychiatric hospitals and prayer camps warehousing those with mental disabilities.
