The Church of God International Headquarters located in Cleveland, Tenessee, United States, is interested in building a hospital in Guyana, with the main purpose of treating mental health issues. Pastor of the Church, Oliver Subryan met with First Lady, Mrs Sandra Granger yesterday, where the idea was discussed in details. A release from the Ministry of the Presidency noted that Pastor Subryan travelled to Guyana to do some groundwork for the Florida-based group – Ambassadors for Christ -which has volunteered to set-up the hospital.
It was noted that the hospital will cater specifically to mental health issues, particularly among people identified to be at risk for suicide and survivors of suicide.
“The team is expected to be in Guyana by the end of March and the project will begin sometime later this year. I am just here to make some preliminary arrangements,” he was quoted in the release as saying.
According to the Ministry of the Presidency, suicide has been a significant issue in Guyana for many years and a number of Guyanese in the diaspora have volunteered their skills and services to help curb this social problem.
Last month, the Health Ministry convened a high-level meeting with a wide range of stakeholders including non-governmental organisations and United Nations (UN) agencies to discuss ways to reduce the high incidences of suicide.
