What We Do
BasicNeeds-Ghana is a mental health and development advocacy organisation that implements and promotes initiatives to transform the lives of people with mental illness or epilepsy by providing access to integrated mental health care, social and economic services in the communities of Ghana. In the process, we empower these individuals and their families, while involving communities, other organisations and the government at large in a bid to influence public opinion and shape policy which would enable people with mental illness or epilepsy live and work successfully in their respective communities.
The vision of BasicNeeds-Ghana is that “People with mental illness or epilepsy live in dignity and satisfy their basic needs and exercise their basic rights”.
BasicNeeds-Ghana’s mission is “to develop and implement initiatives that directly involve people with mental illness or epilepsy, and their families and communities and other organisations to enhance self-determination and influence public opinion and decision-making on mental health and development”.
