The Community Programme for Mental Health took up the worldwide effort and organised a series of radio discussion about the topic. With the help of several local radio stations, it strived to raise the awareness of the communities and increase the understanding of mental illnesses in the communities. In addition, a poster describing the most common symptoms was produced and widely distributed.
These activities are part of the 5-year project to establish a community-based mental health care system in the areas of catchment of St. Martin. A special fundraising campaign will kick off in the coming weeks.
