This report presents the findings of a medical anthropological analysis conducted within the MSF mental health (MH) project in Monrovia, Liberia. The analysis focused on gaining a deeper understanding of patient and caregivers healing pathways (within and outside the MSF clinics); how traditional and religious healers fit into this and approach care; and how each understands MH conditions/epilepsy and treatments, in order to adopt a more tailored community-based and patient-centred approach which ultimately improves quality of care.
