Independent Senator Dr Varma Deyalsingh “Families are desperate “

Independent Senator and Psychiatrist Dr Varna Deyalsingh lamented the fact that there are thousands of homeless people on the streets of Trinidad and Tobago. He told IzzSo there are many reasons for homelessness including mental issues, drug and substance abuse, poverty and family violence. He also said the St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital is full to capacity with more than 800 chronic patients. In many cases desperate families who cannot cope with these patients are forced to send their relatives suffering with mental illness to places like Transformed Life Ministry (TLM).
He said it’s a travesty and the state must intervene.
