Description

The Anguilla National Mental Health Policy and Plan is intended to set a clear direction for the
future development of mental health services in Anguilla. As such, it aims to improve mental
health, and facilitate recovery from illness through a greater focus on promotion, prevention,
early intervention and improved access to mental health services. The plan outlines and defines opportunities to improve collaboration and joint action between sectors, to ensure that people with mental disorders are better supported to participate in their communities. It is envisaged that persons affected with mental health disorders will have their rights and freedoms protected, will be accorded respect, dignity and equitable access to care and treatment, and the opportunity to achieve their full potential through meaningful social inclusion that is free from stigma and discrimination.
