Tuesday 5 July 2011 The Ministry of Health, Wellness, Family Affairs, National Mobilization, Human Service and Gender relations has revamped its Community Mental Health Programme.  Assistant Community Principal Nursing Officer, Juliette Joseph, says the programme has many benefits including cost savings to the country.


''I am proud to report that the program has recommenced. We are hoping that this program will improve mental wellness in Saint Lucia. In addition we are looking forward to decreasing not only admission but readmission at the wellness centre. We are also hoping that the cost of operation at the mental institution will be decreased as well.''


Joseph says it is the ministry's intention to extend the program throughout the island.


Presently the ministry of health is engaged in staff training.
