Who are we?

Twogere is a Ugandan community mental health organization working to reduce the widespread mental health stigma and discrimination. Our activities are focused on changing the way how people think and act about mental health problems. 

The Problem

The prevalence of mental health problems in the Ugandan population is estimated at 35% compared to the 13% worldwide prevalence. Specialized mental health services are mainly located in urban areas and are not easily accessible to many young people who, worse still lack information about mental health. 

In addition, the mental health sector receives only 1% of the health sector budget finance and much of this finance goes to the national referral mental health hospital making it almost impossible to handle most mental health challenges and eventually building up a gap in service delivery and affecting the delivery of community mental health services.

We envision a world where young people's mental health is as valued as physical health.
