But the notion that mental illness is rarely being discussed in the open in Nigeria is eroding increasingly. In this report by BBC Pidgin, Nnamdi, a Nigerian woman, narrates her experience with schizophrenia with the hope that it’ll enable others out there.

Like every other person with schizophrenia, her symptoms began early on in junior secondary school, transforming into hallucinations and delusions. But now she’s grateful for her healing process and the support shown to her by friends and family.
