Mental health Information Network and Development Trust

Promoting healthy minds through knowledge, advocacy and care

Who We Are

The M.I.N.D Trust is a non governmental organization. M.I.N.D Trust stands for Mental health Information Network and Development Trust and the organization is inspired out of a desire to reach out and make a difference in the lives of people with mental health challenges, most especially Children and adolescents. The Organisation is registered under the Company and Allied Matters Act of Nigeria and has been in existence since 2008.

Our interest in Mental health is driven by the understanding of how much unattended emotional pain and suffering contributes to a poor quality of life in the sufferers in particular and affects an entire Nations productivity generally. With a huge mental treatment gap recorded in many developing countries, Nigeria inclusive, it is important for CSOs like ours to contribute.
