Experts counsels Nigeria judges on mental health

A wellness and mental health advocate and founder of the Dew Centre, Lagos, Omon Anenih-Mordi, has advised Nigerian judges to take out time despite their workload to pay attention to their mental health in order to improve their wellbeing and quality of life.

 

Anenih-Mordi made the appeal at the weekend during the 16th International Maritime Seminar for Judges organised by the Nigerian Shippers’ Council in Abuja.

 

She said the workload being undertaken by judges in the dispensation of justice and upholding the right of all under the constitution can be challenging and lead to occupational stress.

 

She added that such herculean task could also lead to increased violence, threat to judges and negative impact on their personal and professional lives.

 

According to Anenih-Mordi, “The fact that we are here today at such prestigious and important seminar taking time out to talk about the wellness of our judges, as far as I am concerned, is like 10,000 steps in the right direction.
