In line with the World Health Organisation, WHO, objectives on mental health, The Retreat, mental hospital Lagos, is holding a mental awareness and free mental health screening to mark this year’s World Mental Health Day with the theme, Mental Health at the Work Place.

The World Mental Health Day, according to WHO, is marked with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health.

Speaking on the retreat mental health awareness drive, the Retreat Chief Executive, Dr. Olufemi Oluwatayo said: “We know that many employers and organisations do not see issues of mental health at the workplace as a priority and many employees may be suffering in silence.

“We, therefore, feel that this is an opportunity to help screen people for common mental disorders such as anxiety and depression and advice on treatment pathways if necessary.”
