    When I was in Liberia, 1976-1980. I lived up country. People with mental problems would have a log chained to their ankle. They were free to wander very slowly around the village. People stayed away from them.

    Mrs. Tubman, the wife of the President Tubman, had a particular interest in treating mental illness in an enlightened manner. She was instrumental in establishing the Catherine Mills Rehabilitation Center as a model that imported psychiatrists from the West, but still retained some of the strengths of communal support inherent in West African society. It was located at Paynesville, some 20 miles distant from Monrovia.
