  1. There is an outpatient psychiatric clinic in abuja when my sister was
    going though depression we contacted them and the doctor was able to
    treat her without us even traveling….the doctor (a US trained
    psychiatrist) was communicating with her via phone and skype…that is
    something they use at their center they call it telepsychiatry so that
    they can help people across Nigeria…their website is it was really convinent since she didnt have to leave lagos. i guess its the same clinic that police are using, we have hope that our officers will get the help they deserve then.
