CBM works with stakeholders including people with psychosocial disabilities to develop quality health services, and to advocate more effectively for improvement of health policies and in the implementation of those policies.

Dr Eaton and his wife Polly, an occupational therapist, were in West Africa between 2003 and 2016.  They were initially in southeast Nigeria working with a local mental health project with homeless people. They then lived in Nigeria’s capital Abuja, and in Lomé, Togo, where Julian worked as CBM’s advisor for Nigeria and the regional work in other countries.
