A Mental Health Team from St. Vincent and the Grenadines visited Belize 19-23 April 2010 on a familiarization visit to look at the success of the Mental Health Programme of the Ministry of Health.

The team was introduced to the community mental health programme and met with consumers and the Mental Health Association. The Ministry of Health facilitated the team throughout the course of the week with activities geared toward providing an understanding the success of the programme and how it could be applied to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Resulting from the visit, technical cooperation between the two countries geared at guiding the St. Vincent and the Grenadines team in the development of a community mental health programme was developed with the Belize programme being the model.
