Mental health proposals discussed Monday

The need for a long term mental health facility in Cayman goes back under the spotlight next week.

Politicians will be given the business plan put together by KPMG into the cost of building and running such a unit.

The man fighting to have the centre built believes the recent court case of a woman convicted of murdering her own daughter highlights the need for such a facility.

“What I’m going to do about it is keep fighting for a long term facility,” said Dr. Marc Lockhart, Chair of the Mental Health Commission.

“Next week a group of us goes before Caucus and Cabinet to go over the findings of KPMG in terms of a business case for a long term facility.

“It is absolutely required and i think if anything, this case highlights the severity and the dangers inherent in none treated mental illness and the need for us to have a facility. We cannot have cases like this be repeated.”

Dr. Lockhart takes his case to politicians for discussion on Monday (4 April).
