Stigma and misconceptions about mental illnesses exist worldwide and are particularly challenging in a post-conflict Liberia that lacks basic mental health services. The Carter Center is working closely with Liberia's Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to build comprehensive services aimed at reducing stigma and providing family and community support programs to form sustainable mental health care in Liberia.
Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
