ASIDO FOUNDATION’S OCTOBER 2021 POLICY BRIEF
Research Dissemination of an Online Survey focused on the Mental Health Impact of the #ENDSARS Protests in Nigeria.
🎯 Last year’s #ENDSARS protests was a form of collective action which resulted in the tragic loss of lives and property.
🎯 It also caused emotional trauma to some of those directly or indirectly involved, which we investigated.
🎯 As we approach the one year anniversary of the protests against police brutality, we are delighted that our research into the mental health impact has now been published in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry.
🎯 Anxiety and depression were the commonest mental health challenges experienced by both protesters and non protesters alike.
Read more about these and our recommendations in the policy brief below; which also has the link to the full article.
🎯 Appreciation. We are especially grateful to the Asido Foundation’s Directorate for Policy and Research (led by Dr Olatunde Ayinde) and the Directorate for Youth Mental Health (led by Ms Semiloore Atere) for overseeing these efforts. Policy brief and illustrations prepared by Mr Abara Erim Abara.
