Consequently, it shocked no one when she won the star performer award. According to Setor Abra Norgbe, hiding from reality when peril approaches is the best portrayal of how mental health issues are taken care of in our networks.
She brought up that legends and confusions encompassing the health condition are accomplishing more mischief than anything. Setor clarified that dysfunctional behaviors like gloom and uneasiness ought not to be ascribed to curses or the otherworldly activities of baneful creatures.
These are perceived medical problems that can be treated with natural and conventional medications regulated in their legitimate dosages.
“We are not saying that traditional medicine is bad. Have we ever wondered about the emotional trauma and turmoil that families go through because their relatives have been wrongly accused of witchcraft? Unknowingly we create another mental illness for the society.”
Dressed as a chief priestess, Setor called for proper diagnosis, treatment, and management of mental disorders. She maintained that our herbal medicines can be improved to provide cures with minimal side effects.
“So as I pour libation to the ancient gods of old and believe in my cowries for answers, I will work hand in hand with the orthodox medical practitioners to provide safe and comprehensive healthcare for my people. Taking advantage of the modern tools that are available to them, for research, diagnosis, and treatment,” she continued.
