Razi Hospital is Tunisia’s only public hospital dedicated entirely to mental health, located on the outskirts of Tunis. For Rim Ghachem Attia, head of department at Razi and a professor at the Tunis University Medical Faculty, they do not have enough resources or staff to do their job properly.

“There is lots that is lacking, lots of medications do not exist, there is a problem between CNAM [the State’s Public Insurance Fund] and the hospital [Razi], or CNAM and the [State’s] Central Pharmacy…the number of staff and doctors is extremely lacking as well,” Attia told Nawaat/Meshkal.
