The Kenya Psychological Association is a scientific and professional organization of psychologists in Kenya. Its growing membership includes all branches of psychology such as Counseling Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Educational Psychology, Industrial Psychology, and others. Our presence seeks to enhance psychological mental health of citizens in this nation believing Kenya cannot achieve Vision 2030 if we do not take our mental health seriously.

Global Mental Health Status

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared 2001 as the Year of Mental Health. This was followed by the publication by the WHO of The World Health Report 2001 titled Mental Health: New Understanding; New Hope.[i]

This report presented to the world information concerning the current understanding of mental and behavioral disorders, their magnitude and burden, effective treatment strategies, and strategies for enhancing mental health through policy and service development. The WHO had recognized the importance of mental health from its origin, and this is reflected in the definition of health in the WHO constitution as “not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”, but rather, “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”.[ii]
