Being there for you, listening & understanding


The Asido Foundation envisions a Nigerian society in which all persons will enjoy optimal mental health regardless of age, gender, socio-economic status, religious creed or ethnicity.



The mission of The Asido Foundation is to promote mental health advocacy and reforms with a view to improving awareness, reducing stigma and discrimination and empowering persons with mental disorders and their families.


The values and principles are guided by global best practices as espoused in the National Mental Health Policy of Nigeria (2013) and the West Africa Health Organization’s (WAHO) Strategic Mental Health Plan (2018-2023). They are also in tandem with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations; the WHO Mental Health Action Plan of 2013-2020; as well as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
Specifically, the values of the Asido Foundation are underpinned by the principles of dignity and respect for human rights, equity and social justice, scientific evidence, respect for culture and religion, accountability, integration, and a life-span approach
