Patients in a mental health institution in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, are left without clothes and some complain about a lack of food, the BBC's Focus on Africa TV programme has discovered.
We gained exclusive access to one of the institutions listed in a Human Rights Watch report released earlier this week, which drew attention to the horrific conditions in three care homes in Ghana.
The report described patients going without food, being kept behind bars, and subjected to degrading physical treatment.
Focus on Africa's correspondent in Ghana, Akwesi Sarpong, sent this report.
