A new mental health advocacy group is in the works, and its organisers told Cayman 27 it will help fund important programmes on island.
Dr. Taylor Burrowes said the NGO, called CayMind, is still in the developmental stages, but once government approval is secured, it will raise funds to back mental health initiatives.
She hopes CayMind can pick up where the Mental Health Commission leaves off.
“There’s no real organizations, even the Mental Health Commission which I serve on, we’re not able to accept funds or start any initiatives that require funding, so basically this will be a hub for fundraising purposes,” said Dr. Burrowes.
Dr. Burrowes said Maples and calder are providing pro-bono legal services to get the charity up and running.
