The Nigerian Correctional Service, NCoS FCT Command, is to partner with Secure D Future International Initiative SDF on raising awareness and improving the mental health of inmates.

The Public Relations Officer of the Correctional Center Chukwuedo Humphrey who made this known in a statement in Abuja said that the partnership was agreed on when the founder of the Organisation, Hajiya Saadatu Adamu visited the command.

The Secure D Future International Initiative presented a list of ten volunteer mental health counsellors and psychologists to the Controller of corrections, FCT Command Ahmed Musa.

The Founder said the Organisation was moved to go into partnership because of the rise in the spate of suicides and other drug-related cases.

This, Hajiya Saadatu said, comes into play especially when inmates are freed and reintegrated to the society adding that their mental health should be given attention while in custody.

The FCT Controller Ahmed Musa appreciated the executive of the Organisation, saying that the mental health counsellors will assist staff Professional Counsellors.

He stated that the partnership which will boost the morale of the inmates towards accepting the different psycho-social programs will also work for the reformation, rehabilitation, and smooth reintegration of inmates into society.

The counsellors would be posted to serve in Kuje and Suleja Medium Custodial centres as well as the Dukpa Model Farm Centre in the FCT.
