Nkabom: A Little Medicine, A Little Prayer – online film screening:
Online

You are warmly invited to join us for the online premier of the documentary Nkabom: A Little Medicine, A Little Prayer.

This ethnographic documentary follows the activities of mental health nurses in rural towns and villages in Ghana who are creating partnerships with healers with the aim to improve the treatment of people with mental health conditions and prevent human rights abuses. The film shows how these partnerships develop, what makes them successful, and the challenges faced in negotiating the removal of restraints as well as accessing resources. The nurses and healers describe how they ka bom, join together, to reach the same goal of helping their patients to get well.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director, Dr Erminia Colucci (Middlesex University) Dr Ursula Read (University of Warwick) and Dr Lily Kpobi (University of Ghana).

The research was funded by UKRI ESRC/AHRC Global Challenges Research Fund.
