Africa is an organization set to support mental health patients in universities and other educational institutions. I faced a lot of challenges in school due to ill management of my condition. A solution was found when a reliable support system was created for to nurture and develop her potential. This support system included a psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, psychopharmacists, nutritionists, fitness trainers and related stakeholders. I have started advocating and support groups.
