Day 634 – Mental Health in Algeria

I participated on a hangout with Living Income Guaranteed,  on the experience of psychiatry in Algeria, since I have a friend living in Algeria with schizophrenia.


Enjoy the video:


What happens to poor people with mental illness in Algeria? What is the cost of treating schizophrenia? Is the Algerian government providing proper healthcare for patients with mental illness? What’s the general state and condition of this North African country at the moment? Is Algerian Media creating awareness about Mental Illnesses to prevent it? Why, despite having the money, is Algeria still very much living in poverty? We will discuss this and more with Seddiki Younes from Algeria and Tormod Hvidsten Gjedrem from Equal Life Foundation’s Mental Health division in Norway.
