IN THE CONCEPTUALIZATION OF THIS BOOK, MY MAIN AIM WAS TO SHARE AND AMPLIFY THE VOICES OF SENATORS, AS SUBMITTED DURING THE SENATE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATES ON THE MENTAL HEALTH (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2018 HELD BETWEEN MAY AND JUNE 2019…
As time went by, this view was relatively expanded to accommodate a more practical and inclusive approach to presenting the insights and involvements of all stakeholders, whom I have regularly consulted and worked with.
I humbly appreciate all interactions with; persons with mental health conditions and their respective representatives, medical health practitioners, civil society organizations, the various institutions and individuals working on the mental health space in Kenya, as well as the general public for candid conversations that assisted to improve or make this publication what it is today.
The sole purpose of the handbook is: to raise awareness of the public on mental health conditions, advocate for community based solutions to addressing mental health issues in Kenya, and utilize voices of leaders to reduce stigma. My hope is that the publication shall be accessible to all Kenyans… and can help people in need!
… It ok not to be ok!
