Prison Mental Health in Lilongwe

We have begun providing mental health and counselling services within Maula Prison in Lilongwe, starting with a series of mental health training sessions to raise awareness and develop competencies amongst prison staff. Several prison warder groups have received training and a monthly mental health clinic has been set up.

 Last year Saint John of God Hospitaller Services participated in a consultative meeting co-organised by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the Malawi Government Prison and Security Services.

 We have also been incorporated into the Prison Stakeholders’ Network which is mandated to review and develop The Prison Act. Our photo shows staff with one of the prison warder groups  who undertook training with us.
