Welcome to Maandeeq Mental Health & Training Institute 

One in three individuals in Somalia have some form of mental illness according to the latest scientific data. Exposures to both man-made and natural disasters have contributed to such high rates of mental health challenges. Most often, the physical wounds of tragedies are addressed and the psychological impacts over looked. Damaged buildings are rebuilt soon after attacks as we’ve seen in the cases of recent attacks such as Zoobe, Dayax Hotel, SYL, NasaHablood, Jazeera and Ambassador hotel and many more. 


What is unfortunate is that hidden wounds barely get discussed let alone addressed, leaving a nation and its people deeply wounded,  relationally disconnected, and unable to heal.
