According to the World Health Organization, globally, there is a huge inadequacy of human resources for mental health. Shortages of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, psychologists and social workers are among the main barriers to providing treatment and care, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Low-income countries have 0.05 psychiatrists and 0.42 nurses per 100 000 people. This indicates the high demand for qualified professionals in the field of psychology worldwide.
ANC has always recognized the importance of giving local students access to psychology education which is a lucrative field of study that was once limited to the West. Lifting such boundaries, ANC has renewed its partnership with top accredited universities in US with the aim to produce more psychology professionals.
