The mother of a woman who was locked up after she threatened restaurant staff with a machete welcomed the news a new mental health facility will be built in Cayman.
But Lillis Ebanks feels if the facility was built sooner, her daughter would have been given better care, and may not, have done what she did.
“We are far too late,” she said.
“We should have had this facility years ago. The government was not doing a proper job. They should have been looking out for their people. Because without people, you don’t have a country.”
Cayman 27’s Paul Kennedy has more.
