Sierra Leone Psychiatric Hospital (previously known as Kissy Mental Hospital) was infamous for treatment of its patients, many of them chained in inhuman conditions. The only psychiatric facility in Sierra Leone is undergoing regeneration. It's buildings are being renovated and conditions for patients are improving. There is however a serious shortage of medical and nursing staff as well as low vages. Currently only 3 psychiatrists are available to treat people in Sierra Leone.
