Mental health remains a challenge in Ghana yet very limited resources are committed to it, stakeholders in Mental Health have observed.
They have consequently called on government of Ghana to invest in mental health services adding that in the last few years, with the enactment of the Mental Health Act (846, 2012) and establishment of the Mental Health Authority, a lot has been done in advancing the course of mental health but the efforts need to be sustained.
The Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) has rejected a suggestion that marijuana should be legalised in Ghana. According to CHAG, marijuana, popularly referred to as “wee” in Ghana, has been identified as one of the major causes of mental illness in the country.
