Ministry Partners with PAHO to Provide Mental Health Support for RTI Victims

Road traffic incidents (RTI) can take a toll on someone’s mental health, whether the victim is in recovery or the family dealing with loss. The Ministry of Economic Development and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) signed an agreement to train front-line workers on treating the mental health of victims or relatives who have been in an RTI. The Belize Second Road Safety Initiative project manager, Zane Castillo, explained that yesterday twenty-three people were trained to provide psychosocial support services to anyone who may need it within the country.

Castillo then went on to say that help can be reached through any health facility.  

It was a free, two-day workshop that was said to hopefully happen again soon for more frontline workers.
