Abstract: Despite the recognized role of traditional healers in helping patients with mental health problems, there is a need for modern mental healthcare facilities in Africa. When made available, these are used by the local population, but less by those at remote locations. Data from the SOSAME centre indicate the high prevalence of mental diseases, especially in urban population and during the active decades of life. To decrease the burden imposed on mental health institutions by patients consulting for non-mental problems, it is desirable to integrate these institutions with the other components of the healthcare system.
