|Abstract: ||. In low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) in general and sub-Sahara African (SSA)
countries in particular, there is both a large treatment gap for mental disorders and a relative
paucity of empirical evidence about how to fill this gap. This is more so for severe mental dis orders, such as psychosis, which impose an additional vulnerability for human rights abuse on
its sufferers. A major factor for the lack of evidence is the few numbers of active mental health
(MH) researchers on the continent and the distance between the little evidence generated and
the policy-making process.|
