The World Health Organization (WHO) has set a date for mental health care as September 10 of each year is the Day to Combat Suicide and the causes of suicide and October 10 each year is International Day for Mental Health.

These days in Rwanda have been put together to create a three-month campaign to sensitize people to avoid putting them in a mental state, saying that although there is a problem, there is also help available in various institutions operating in Rwanda. There are NGOs that can also take care of mental health because there are those who work for unity and reconciliation and mental health, there are those who fight violence but build mental health, there are those who build youth and mental health , because it’s not all about the doctor’s solution.

Today, October 28, 2021, the National Institute of Health (RBC) in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the University of Rwanda Department of Psychiatry celebrated the International Day of Mental Health in the headline with the theme “There is hope after you have a mental problem.Let’s talk”. A 2015 study by the Center for Social and Health Statistics found that 40% of domestic violence cases were experienced by women, while by 2020 the study showed 46%. When a child grows up in a conflict-affected family it affects his or her health.

Prof Sezibera Vincent is the director of the University of Rwanda’s Center for Mental Health Research, but young people are more likely to be infected than adults.
“Some of the top issues are depression and suicide even when they have suicidal ideation, and when they don’t commit suicide they use behaviors that don’t seem to improve their lives and go to drugs, all of which are caused by family problems and “Violence against children is unknown.”

UNICEF Director General in Rwanda Ms. Julianna Lindsey has returned to her partnership with the National Institutes of Health (RBC) especially in exchanging information and sensitizing adolescents to help with the challenges they face. “Today has been a great day for us because we have heard the testimonies of teenagers about the problems they have faced and how they have been able to get rid of them, because that is what made them able to get out of it so they can make a difference,” he said.

Dr Yvonne Kayitashonga, director of the Department of Psychiatry at the National Institutes of Health (RBC), urges people to listen to adolescents and adolescents to prevent mental illness.
“We have to focus on teenagers because mental problems or anxiety, thinking starts in those years because there is a change in their mindset, that’s when they start thinking about how they lived and how they were born, and their health,” he says. in the future, he will need to respect the adult and explain it to him so that he can see that it is normal for his personality to change, ”he said.

According to the Department of Mental Health at the University of Rwanda’s Department of Mental Health, adolescents and adolescents have between 20 and 40% of the symptoms of mental illness, but that is due to family problems.

Other causes of violence include child abuse at school or elsewhere, where a study conducted by UNICEF and the Minister in collaboration with the CDC shows that 11% of girls are sexually abused. Unplanned pregnancies for girls under the age of 18 have risen to 19,000 in all reported cases, as all of these are detrimental to mental health and lead to severe depression where they now account for 11%.

At present, 46 District Hospitals in the country have psychiatric hospitals, while about 410 Mental Health Centers have already seen 80% of people working in mental health, which is a matter of pride because Rwanda has stepped up its efforts to combat these mental problems.
