Many Nigerians Not Mentally Stable – Psychologist by iwaeda: 12:56pm On Nov 25, 2023
Chairman of the Nigerian Psychological Association (NPA) in Benue State, Dr Iorlumun Shimakaa, has expressed concern that many Nigerians are not mentally stable.

Shimakaa made the remark at a two-day capacity building training on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support organised by the NPA in collaboration the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Benue State Ministry of Health and Human Service.

At the training in Makurdi, Benue capital, he said the situation is occasioned by the current challenges bedeviling the country.

The state NPA chairman said the development had become a source of worry for experts in the sector as he emphasised that without sound mental health no one would be able to realise his or her full potentials in any given field.

We all agree that everybody in Benue state particularly and in Nigeria cannot boast of having a stable mental health because of the present challenges that have affected our mental health generally.”

And we also agree that there cannot be good health without mental health. For that reason it has become imperative that we come together as partners to deepen our knowledge and improve the services we are delivering at our various platforms of intervention.

“So with this capacity building, we will not just come up with increased level of knowledge but we will also set up our level of intervention in the various places where we have been intervening. But most importantly for us in Benue state, the Nigeria Psychological Association has risen up to its responsibilities to take the lead as the lead advocator for mental health and for mental health issues in the state. For us we have assumed this role and responsibility with all seriousness,” he said.

Shimakaa further posited that at the end of the strategic capacity building training, a foundation for all of participants to have a harmonised intervention in mental health would be in place for a refined pathway for mental health activities.

On his part, the Commissioner for Health and Human Services, Dr. Yanmar Ortese, represented by the Mental Health Desk Officer in the Ministry, James Ngutswen, said the state had accorded attention to the issues of mental health and wellbeing of the people with the establishment of treatment services in all the 276 council wards of the state.

I have long since noticed that the population of clinically sane people in Nigeria no pass five again. A normal person living in an abnormal nation is actually not normal! Baba Fela of blessed memory has since posited that a world which accepts the likes of Buhari as anything less than a natural disaster has got to be a crazy world! Ergo Nigerians still holding on to any associations (be it political, or any gaddem mosque, any gaddem church, any gaddem celestical.... including Cheraboom & Seraphoom) with said fellow, are all mentally disabled! grin

Of course

And it’s not just a Nigerian thing; many people around the world are mentally unstable. In some parts of the world, one may wake up one day only to carry a pump-action shotgun and randomly shoot people, including in schools. It’s that bad.

As a matter of fact, there are less mentally unstable individuals in Africa compare to other parts of the world. Thanks to the collectivism in Africa societies where one’s family members are expected to provide one with social supports during hard times, unlike the individualism in other parts of the world where you deal with your problems yourself of which maladapting may lead to serious mental health conditions like depression, suicidal thoughts, psychopathy and even psychosis.

70% of the people that will comment here, only read the topic and ignored the article.

That's to show their mental- health is unstable

I have a feeling that people who do this kind of things have some hidden mental issues.
