Kisumu County doesn’t care about mental health

When were recently analyzing the Kisumu County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) 2018-2022, we’re shocked on discovering that only Ksh. 3 million had been allocated towards mental health in Kisumu County. This is an allocation which definitely needs to be looked into during the mid-term review next year.
