The treatment gap – the proportion of people with mental illness who don’t get treatment - is generally believed to be 90% in Nigeria and a lot of the other African countries are not doing very well in this regard. There is the issue of stigma against those with emotional or mental issues and the mistaken belief that it cannot be treated. Generally, emotional and mental health is currently not enjoying enough airplay considering how important it is in the scheme of things. People would jolly well treat physical ailments quicker than they would do emotional and mental health illness. The ratio can be said to be Cheetah : Snail pace at best.
