THE EDITOR, Madam:

The Spaldings police and the citizens’ association deserve commendation for their outstanding display of community participation and empathy towards the ­community of the mentally ill.

Recently, we celebrated Mental Health Week and the Spaldings police department, led by Inspector Maurice Amos, along with the citizens’ association and other donors, provided care packages for over 60 mental health patients at the Percy Junor Hospital.

Special thanks to Inspector Amos, Sergeant Brooks, Paul Lyn, Glen Miller, Avril Sinclair, Mrs Sharpe, Doreen Evans, Sharon Thompson, and Drs Wright, Robinson and Morris.

Indeed, there is no good health without good mental health, and mental health patients matter!
