He added that the authority depends on benevolence of donors and other agencies.

He has called on government to commit more funds to support the activities of the Mental Health.

In an interview on Accra FM, he said "It has been two years now and we haven’t received any money from the government to do our work.

"At the moment, we are relying on donors, both externally and internally, and the day they will stop donating to us it means we can’t work. We are using this medium to remind the government that we need money to run the affairs at the Authority.
