There are 5 main groups which access the programme:
Services to these groups are provided through the collaborative effort of CUMI and various agencies in the Montego Bay area. Although CUMI’s services are predominately for the mentally ill, it acts as the referral agency for cases of drug addiction, the economically poor and HIV/AIDS cases.
All clients, as per need, are provided with temporary services including food, clothing, shelter, medication, daily-living-skills training, community psychiatric care, psychologist sessions and job placement where possible.
These services are aimed at restoring client’s back to their family supported environment or independent living. CUMI tries to ensure that all eligible clients receive their entitlement/ (government benefit), such as PATH (Poverty Alleviation Training for Health & Education) and Poor Relief aid. All efforts are made to educate families, for them to learn and understand mental illnesses along with public education extended to the communities.
