Belize still dependent after 38 years of independence

Caribbean: Our country of Belize received its independence from Great Britain on Sept. 21, 1981.

Time for Belize to implement Mental Health plan

Health: When I was growing up in Belize the people that had mental problems were not treated with any respect and that is still happening today. Our government need to educate our people about mental illness to reduce this disrespect. If the government does not educate our people about this disease, then many of our citizens will continue to disrespect and mistreat our citizens with mental illness. I believe that mental health education will be beneficial to all of us to change this attitude. Most of us have at least one person in our family who suffers from a mental illness and we are aware of the pain and suffering that it brings to our families. Comment
