Young people in Jersey to receive dedicated mental health ward
Plans are under way to create a dedicated place in Jersey for young people struggling with their mental health.
The Robin Ward at the General Hospital in Jersey is undergoing refurbishment to create a mental health ward specifically for young people, reports ITV News.
When the refurbishment is complete there will be an enhanced facility for young people needing admission for planned treatment, or for those following an emergency referral, along with provision for people with mental health issues that need hospital care.
Senator Andrew Green, Minister for Health and Social Services has said: “It’s very important that we provide a bespoke facility that meets the needs of young Islanders who face mental health challenges.
