WHO, in a report listed other countries affected to include Bangladesh, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, South Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The global health body said one person in five is living with some form of mental disorder, from mild depression or anxiety to psychosis, and almost one in ten is living with a moderate or severe mental disorder.

According to the Federal Ministry of Health, three in every ten or thirty per cent of Nigerians suffer from one form of mental disorder or the other.
