DRCVI to Host Meeting on Systematic Change of Mental Health Services

The Disability Rights Center of the Virgin Islands (DRCVI) will host a meeting with Chacku Mathai of the Star Center, which is a support and technical assistance center that is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the federal agency providing funds for mental health services for the Virgin Islands.
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and preview the process to effect systematic transformation of mental health services. The intended audience includes all stakeholders, consisting of consumers, family members and community advocates who are concerned with the lack of adequate mental health services in the Virgin Islands.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, July 7, at the offices of DRCVI at 9003 Havensight Mall Ste. 313, Building. 3 (Above Deli Deck Restaurant). A preview of the Leadership Program associated with the Star Center will be presented to the community.
This program hopes to foster collaboration among all concerned to assist persons with mental illness. It seeks to find out how, as a community, everyone can come together to help transform mental health services and become aware of the best new practices in the delivery of mental health services. Admission is free.
