The SUpport, Comprehensive Care and EmpowErment for people with psychosocial Disabilities in sub-Saharan Africa (SUCCEED Africa) is a five-country research consortium in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Malawi, and Zimbabwe, coordinated by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, United Kingdom (LSHTM, UK).
SUCCEED Africa is a six-year project that aims to co-produce a sustainable, effective, evidence-based package of multi-sectorial care and support for persons with psychosocial disabilities with a focus on severe mental disorders. This intervention will be in line with existing normative guidance that is feasible, acceptable and appropriate for low-resource, community-based settings. The project will achieve this by working with persons with psychosocial disabilities directly and via organised groups.
The Nigeria team will host a local launch to officially announce the project, sensitise and stimulate conversations with the public and relevant stakeholders about the project and its objectives. This event will hold as follows:
