ADJUMANI district health department has decried the high number of youth suffering from mental-related diseases.
Dradenya Amazia reports that in a joint workshop organised by the Mental Health Care Organisation and UK-based Sheffield Care Trust at Zawadi Hotel on Wednesday, the chairman for Nyarima Trust Ltd, John Bosco Opio, said many youth were suffering from mental sickness because of drug abuse.
â€œOur youth are involved in drug abuse and alcoholism, leading to the high rate of defilement, rape, burglary and idleness,â€ he said.
Direct of health services Dr. Rabbin Drabe said some youth used drugs due to the trauma caused by LRA rebels.
