Mental health is not a topic most people in the Caribbean want to discuss. In fact, many people feel this is not a problem and definitely not a topic for public discourse. The issue is so taboo in the Caribbean, those who have mental health problems are likely to ignore the need to seek out help. Where it is accepted that persons may need help, they are often alienated by those around them. Unfortunately, families are usually the breathing ground for these issues and are also where the brunt of the impacts are most experienced.
Having support is critical to overcoming mental health issues. However it would seem, help is the least forthcoming during this time of need. Mental health issues range across a spectrum and can be considered along a continuum of different problems, from minor to severe.
