A new mental health facility here in Cayman could be open to patients in as little as just 18 months time.

Accountants KPMG have carried out a study into the benefits of building such a centre and Tuesday (21 June)  gave it the green light.

It means the current, cramped unit at the Cayman Islands Hospital, with be replaced with an open plan centre, built-in the style of a farm over ten acres.

The chairman of the mental health commission says he’s delighted, but not just for himself.

“I felt elated,” said Dr. Marc Lockhart.

“And my elation is not for myself, it’s for those who require this facility and for those who we have fought for, for so many years to hear that we have finally decided to move forward with this.

“The family members and the patient who are suffering and more importantly, those who are overseas right now.

“Those that are in Jamaica and have been there for 8, 9, even up to 17 years to know finally we are moving forward and having something done.”
