Who we are
Choose life Ghana Foundation is a non-governmental organization founded by Ms. Fumey Kafui Dorcas and co-founded by Mr. Atta Francis which is designed solely to address the issue of mental health among people in society through partnership with resource personnel and public agencies.
The founding principle of the organization is to start a public dialogue on mental health and bring to light episodes attributed to mental illness. As part of our commitment, Choose Life Ghana aim to embrace solutions to minimize and create much awareness on the issue of mental illness within Ghana and beyond.
Choose life Ghana was formed to draw attention to some of the issues that continue to shake the core of our social fabric in Ghana. Problems associated with mental illness among young and the old across the geographical divide has become so pervasive, that the media public agencies and non-governmental organizations could no longer turn a blind eye to this existing problem.
In fact, it sprang up new organizations with a sole objective to tackle the issue of mental health in our communities; ultimately choose life Ghana is a leading voice in this fight against mental illness at such a moment. The founding objective of the organization is an important episode in the on-going contribution towards redefining and re-framing the discussion about young people in society and their capacity to overcome issue related to mental illness regardless of the circumstance. The complexities of experiences on social media, inadequate access to counselling or proper treatment centrers and ineffective education on the subject matter to combat emotional instability, substance abuse, deppresion and to some extent suicide among young people ultimately has led to a slew in the issue of mental illness. Here at choose life Ghana, we believe the percentage of mental illness that go unreported and unrecognized are significant hence our unfettered desire to lead the conversation of this problem in order to generate enough awareness to address this issue head-on.
We at Choose Life wish to help people by using this website and other platforms to send a strong signal of hope, encouragement and better still give people a fresh start in life.
- Provide a platform for young people to discover their true potential, accept themselves and know the true worth of their existence.
- A Society where individuals overcome mental illneses and choose life above all.
Choose Life Ghana is managed and staffed entirely by volunteers who are ready and willing to support.
We have a great staff with each member focused on our mission and together with a common goal, we will attain our vision.
