Initially, MHU was formed as a group to bring together people with mental illness to enhance mental health service provision and sharing experiences among its members. Since its inception, MHU has grown from a mere membership organization to a pressure group to ensure mental health services are provided and the development issues especially livelihood and poverty related needs of people with and survivors of mental illness are met. MHU believes in using a holistic approach in addressing issues of people with mental illness, every one should be ready to get involved. This is not to view mental illness only as a medical issue but also a social and development issue for all of us. A human based approach to address the needs and rights of people with mental illness is also used. Mental Health Uganda operates in 18 out of the 80 districts in Uganda. These districts are spread in four regions of the country.
