Mental illness is a major cause of morbidity as well as some mortality, particularly amongst vulnerable people worldwide. WHO estimates that over 400 million people around the world currently suffer from mental or neurological disorders or from psychosocial problems such as those related to alcohol and drug abuse. The mental health act recognises that health is a state of physical, mental and social wellbeing and that mental health services should be provided as part of primary, secondary and tertiary health services. Lack of provision of services as well as mental health promotion may lead to common displays within HIV positive clients, this is also applicable to suicidal ailments, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression to mention a few.
