The Medical Director, Synapse Service Resource Centre, Dr. Vincent Udenze has said that one in every four Nigerian is living with one form of mental disorder or another and one in seven persons would suffer a serious episode of mental illness in their life because many Nigerians do not seek help due the acute shortage of registered health facilities and the stigma attached to the condition.

Dr. Vincent has therefore called on Government, Private sector, Non-Government Organizations and individuals to pay more attention to mental illness cases and provide facilities for those who need treatment.
