Uganda generally has a wonderful climate, warm sometimes moist days, cooler nights getting progressively warmer to the north. You would likely be based in Kampalas southern side towards the lake and that hospital. You would likely live in a screened cement block house with a concrete painted floor that many times would have water and electricity. At times challenging internet access. No need for air conditioning. Kampalas traffic challenges most.
You would need to connect into the Ugandan mental health networks and would need to be a self-starter. Humble There is only a very limited expatriate involvement. You would also be a part of the larger WorldVenture team seeking to build the church in Uganda through leadership training and compassion ministries. At their October 2009 they and Ugandan church leaders independently and then together identified the Educational/Institutional Sector of Uganda.
