Local authorities and corporates in the Great Dyke have been urged to chip in and help mental health patients in their communities to guard against tragic incidents.
Hands of Hope Trust founder and director Millicent Nhutsve told Great Dyke News 24 that some on the streets have become violent as they no longer access medicines that help manage their condition.
She called for a multi-stakeholder approach to conduct awareness campaigns and move towards a society in which mental health patients get adequate assistance.
Zimbabwe this week joins the rest of the world in commemorating mental health week from Monday 10 May to Saturday 15 May, amid calls to intensify the fight against the problem.
