The people advocating a new mental health facility on island say there will be no need to bring in staff from overseas.

It’s hoped the designated therapeutic centre will be able to start receiving patients in two years time.

It will a farm-like structure, similar to this Gould Farm in the United States. And when it is finally open, the plan is to staff it with people from here.

“This facility is going to be run by local people,” said Dr. Marc Lockhart, Chair of the Mental Health Commission.

“People here, Caymanians and residents on the island. This is going to increase, and circulate funds and help the economy also.”

Once it’s up and running, Dr. Lockhart believes it could also be used for medical tourism, to bring money into the country.
