Home of Brains
The ‘Brain Home’ Rehabilitation Centers in Aflao, Ghana and Kisumu, Kenya are a resource for people that are impacted by mental illness and would like to contribute to its destigmatization. The centers are open to all walks of faith. Activities at the Home of Brains include efforts on prevention, therapy, and rehabilitation and all projects are research-based. Through this enterprise our patients have access to a regular income, which makes their medical treatment possible and facilitates their reintegration into society. After participants complete their programs successfully, they become mentors to new patients and serve as patient counselors on mental illness. Home of Brains is a possible approach to decentralized and holistic healthcare in rural areas in Ghana and Kenya .
