Mental Health In Trinidad

On TV6 there was a report about there being a Mental Health crisis in Trinidad & Tobago with one example being given of the Barataria Health facility that newly opened having tripled in the number of people seeking help for some sort of mental disorder. A Health officer / chairman mentioned that a lot of the people come in having been doubled diagnosed, for instance they are told they are schizophrenic but at the same time it may be offset because they have a drinking problem. He alo mentioned that a lot of the youth are suffering with depression. Any thoughts?

Mental health in Trinidad still remains an issue everyday, with only one mental health institute and no new facilities put in place for the country there is nothing we can do about it.
