One in every eight people live with a mental health disorder, so if that’s not you, it’s likely to be a close friend or family member. Despite there being a variety of known treatments, globally the majority of people suffering do not receive any medical support. To see how the discussion around mental health is playing out across the African continent, CrowdScience visits Nairobi, Kenya. Presenter Marnie Chesterton is joined by a live audience and panel of experts – psychiatrist David Ndetei, psychotherapist Reson Sindiyo and mental health journalist Dannish Odongo – to get to the heart of what’s going on in our heads.
