Taking care of your mental health - Accra Psychiatric Hospital

The Hospital is responsible for the treatment, welfare, training and rehabilitation of the mentally ill.

The University Of Ghana Medical School has a faculty established in the hospital for undergraduate training in psychiatry and postgraduate training under the West African College of psychiatrists (WACP). The hospital thus has a symbiotic relationship with the medical school.

Nurses from all over the country are affiliated to this hospital for 6-month proficiency training in psychiatry.
