      In Ghana, you can read mental health at the Diploma Level. Later, you can do a Post-diploma, which is equivalent to degree at the University of Cape Coast.
      The two most popular institutions that offer Diploma in Mental Health Nursing are the Ankaful Nurses’ Training College in Cape Coast; and the Pantang Nurses Training College in Accra.
