ADVOCACY & NETWORKING:
We engage with stakeholders and partners to provide coordination mechanism on the delivery of psychological services and interventions. These includes communication and collaboration at various levels (national, regional and community) as well as build eﬀective partnerships, raise awareness and advocate for mental health with key decision makers. RHDI is a member of the Community Intervention Network on Drugs (CIND), the International NGO Forum (INGO) as well as the Civil Society Network against Drug Abuse (CSNetDA). Currently, there is absence of data on mental health in our health facilities in Nigeria. Thus Reconnect Health Development Initiative is advocating and networking with relevant bodies and development partners to collate data on mental health to inform policy makers and government to help address the mental health needs of the citizens.
