How could it be? In a country of 200 million people, there are no support groups for people living with mental health challenges.

Studies show that a support system can significantly improve recovery, healing and general wellbeing

In October 2016, we initiated Safe Place monthly women-only support groups in Lagos.
Safe Place exists because people need connection, conversations and compassion.
Today, we’re more than a support group. We’re a community still going; with presence in Abuja, Ibadan, Kaduna, Ogun and Osun states in Nigeria.
Safe Place Support Group is a gathering of young people in a stigma and judgment-free space that offers them a space to release and talk about life issues in hopes of getting care, accountability and information that creates attitudinal or behavioural change.
It offers a no-cost addition to mental health care whilst creating a safe haven to belong, be heard and be understood.

On campuses, we’re helping students address stress, substance abuse and other life issues. We’re using education and awareness to provide information and knowledge that changes attitudes and behaviours towards mental, emotional and psychological wellness.
