Psychiatry in Kenya

Mental health in Kenya is relatively young, compared to other medical subspecialties. Postgraduate training started in the early 1980s, and there are only about 70 psychiatrists in the entire country.
This blog will be dedicated to looking at development in mental health and Psychiatry in Kenya, and perhaps in the Eastern Africa region.
It will contain links to sites such as World Health Organisation, World Psychiatric Association and other relevant sites for information and resources on mental health. Comments are welcome and will be answered to the best knowledge of the writer, but the opinions expressed here should not be used as treatment advice without reference to your physician or mental health clinician.
This introduction is enough for today, and I hope all that visit this blog will enjoy themselves enough to refer others to it!
