HEALTH MINISTER: St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital to be de-commissioned

The 117-year-old St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital is to be de-commissioned.

Confirmation has come from Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh, during his contribution to the 2020 Budget debate this morning.

Minister Deyalsingh says the Government is working on a new centrally located centre which will focus on treating Mental Health.

This he says will be a part of a change in approach to the treatment of Mental Health in the country, which he termed, "Behavioural Health Wellness services".
