This was noted by Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, at the World Mental Health Day conference on October 10, at the Jamaica Conference Centre, downtown Kingston. The conference was held under the theme: ‘Depression: A Global Crisis’. “Our goal is to maintain a comprehensive, multifaceted treatment programme that revolves around: continuity of care; group and family therapy; environmental and social support and intervention; and community participation, support and control,” the Minister explained. He reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to addressing the issue of the modernisation of the mental health services, to make them more relevant to the times. “It is clear that the new focus has to be geared towards a greater emphasis on care in the community as opposed to institutionalisation,” he said. Dr. Ferguson added however, that there will always be a need for institutionalisation of some patients. The Minister informed that several policies and protocols have recently been developed that are integral to improving the quality of mental health care. These include: a guideline for the management of psychiatric emergencies was developed and distributed earlier this year; standardised restraints were purchased for use in hospitals and for emergencies in communities; and four buses were purchased for the community service. Dr. Ferguson also noted that the National Mental Health Policy and the Mental Health Legislation are undergoing revision; and a mental health handbook will be launched soon. Some of the issues examined at the conference were: ‘Depression in children’; ‘The economic impact of depression’; ‘Depression in a recession’; ‘Depression in chronic diseases and the elderly’; ‘Depression in care givers of the mentally ill’; and ‘Counselling tips in depression’.

Selig: Senator Leahy brings program HOME

first_imgby Gus Seelig, Executive Director, Vermont Housing & Conservation Board Last summer, US Senator Patrick Leahy helped break ground in Brattleboro for Red Clover Commons – 55 new apartments to replace housing for seniors and persons with disabilities that was severely damaged by Tropical Storm Irene and remains in harm’s way. In the fall, Governor Peter Shumlin was in Waterbury to hand keys to Tim and Aimee Smith along with their two young sons. Mr. Smith works in Vermont’s growing energy sector and was delighted to find an affordable home at the new South Main Apartments. These developments, along with 28 new homes in Woodstock, 14 new units for seniors in a historic building in Rutland, 28 renovated apartments in the heart of Lyndonville, 23 apartments under construction in Hinesburg and 24 units planned in Bennington, have much in common. They all provide housing lower-income Vermonters can afford and all were made possible by state funding from the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board that was matched by a federal program called “HOME.” Ground breaking at Red Clover Commons in Brattleboro, 55 new apartments for elders being developed by the Brattleboro Housing Authoirty and Housing Vermont. Left to right, Gus Seelig, Executive Director, VHCB; Chris Hart, Executive Director, Brattleboro Housing Authority; Senator Patrick Leahy. Courtesy VHCBThe recent good news of a budget compromise in Washington includes the survival of the HOME Investment Partnership Program, which was nearly eliminated. It is easy to get discouraged by the recurring impasse in D.C. and it can be difficult to follow the alphabet soup of program acronyms. But it is essential for Vermonters to understand how critical federal housing dollars are to the state’s ability to create and fund housing developments that help communities revitalize and grow. Tight rental markets are severely limiting housing availability in many parts of the state.  Vermont is battling homelessness and we need to produce more homes for our workforce.  Calls for more housing are getting louder and come from the business community as well as educators, advocates and others. Vermont’s ability to respond greatly depends on federal funding.For more than 20 years, Senator Leahy has steadfastly supported HOME and the Community Development Block Grant, another program crucial to rural communities. Each year he gathers support from his fellow senators and advocates for the programs from his seat on the Senate Appropriations Committee. He also works with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to ensure these programs are well attuned to Vermont. This year the House dramatically reduced and the Senate at first acted to virtually eliminate the HOME Program. Senator Leahy and his exceptional staff led the successful fight to restore funding and save the program.Governor Peter Shumlin joined this effort. He worked other New England Governors, Republican and Democrat alike, in urging Congress to support HOME.   The Vermont Mayors Coalition also weighed in to explain how vital the program is to their communities. Construction crews are now building 28 new affordable apartments in downtown Barre.  It is unlikely the project would have moved forward without the HOME program.  In Montpelier, plans are in the works to create housing in the upper floors of the French Block on Main Street. These and similar opportunities around the state will not be realized without state and federal investments, including through HOME. Throughout his career, Senator Leahy has used his seniority, political acumen, strategic ability and alliances to champion community development and housing programs important to Vermont. The victory on HOME is likely to translate to more than $15 million in federal housing funds for Vermont over the next five years, enabling approximately 30 housing developments totaling more than 1,000 new units and creating thousands of jobs. This is great news to begin the new year.  Senator Leahy deserves all our thanks for his quiet and effective work to bring HOME back to Vermonters and their communities.Watkins School Apartments in Rutland, developed by the Housing Trust of Rutland County, provides 14 new apartments for seniors in two buildings–an historic school house and a newly constructed addition.

Q&A | Mark Stoops talks UK camp Day 18

first_imgSenior linebaker Josh Forrest is interviewed during the University of Kentucky Football media day at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky., on August 7, 2015. Photo by Mike WeaverSenior linebaker Josh Forrest is interviewed during the University of Kentucky Football media day at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky., on August 7, 2015. Photo by Mike WeaverMARK STOOPSOpening statement: “Good practice today. It was good to come back after a day off yesterday. Guys had good energy, good focus, did some good things on both sides of the ball, worked some more situations. One more day left before school starts, so we got to get a few more things cleaned up, but better work today.”On if he was holding his breath wondering if they’d go back to the energy level of late last week: “No, I felt like they would come out pretty good. I’d have no reason to believe that they wouldn’t after Saturday night’s practice, and just re-focused again. We had a pretty good camp going, and then hit a little lull there. Got their attention and got things back on track.”On if Levon Livingston is on campus: “Not at this point, he’s not. He’s not here at this point.”On if they got final word on Courtney Love and Greg Hart: “Yeah, right now it was denied. So we have one more appeal going with Courtney, but I feel like Greg’s will be denied.”On if Love was denied and they’re currently appealing: “Yeah, another appeal.”<!–iframe–>On if the Saturday night practice accomplished what he wanted it to: “Yeah, it did. I think it certainly – they understand very clearly what’s acceptable and what’s not. You only have so many learning opportunities and you either get them corrected, get them rectified, or things will stay the same. We’ll see. I think we certainly learned something from Saturday morning and from Saturday night, and hopefully we’ll carry that with us throughout the season. Because I can promise you there’s gonna be some other times this year when we’re beat down, beat up and we have to dig down and go play some football.”On if they found some leaders in this process: “I believe so. I believe so. More than anything, just with the whole team, the individual accountability – to make sure each individual responds and is ready to go. I think we will.”On how big a role he expects his redshirt freshman safeties to play: “I believe they’re gonna have an impact. They’re very good football players. You put on the film and you see them showing up. They need some game experience and they need to play, but I’m excited about seeing them play. The first impact that they’ll have will be on special teams, and I know they’ll show up. I can just tell by the way they play. Again, you put them on a scrimmage tape and you see them making the plays, just doing something a little extra. I mean, getting off blocks and just having the instincts and playing physical. So I anticipate they’ll have an impact. How soon and to what extent, we’ll see.”On if they’ve settled on kick and punt returners yet: “Not really. No, no. We’re still mixing. We feel confident we’ll have some guys ready to go, but we’re working on a few guys.”On Ryan Flannigan and Josh Forrest: “Yeah. Josh was back. He was back. He was just sick as a dog for a couple days, but he was back. Flannigan was out there in a no-contact jersey. Trying to protect his shoulder a little bit, but it was good to see him out there taking some reps and doing some seven-on-seven and doing drill work and just getting out there conditioning and running some plays. So it was good to see him out there.”On if anybody else is out: “I don’t think so, no.”On if they’ve started Lafayette install: “We’ll start that on Wednesday. One more day of mixing in camp stuff and good on good. We worked some other opponents a little bit throughout camp, some teams that we may play beyond the first game, game two or game three, game four. We look at certain things in camp, but certainly all of our focus will be on Louisiana Lafayette on Wednesday.”On if the defensive line rotation is settled: “Oh, I don’t know about settled. We’re working our way through it. We’re gonna need all those guys at some point, so we’re really just working to get fundamentally better right now up front.”On if anybody jumped out at him today: “No, not really. Not until I go see the film. I just felt like it was a better practice. You saw routine plays look routine and you saw some competitive plays. About what you would expect through camp.”On if he hesitates to play freshmen Chris Westry and Derrick Baity at corner together: “Not if they’re the best. Not if they’re both ready to go. If they’re clearly playing the best, then they’ll be out there.”On if they might be: “I’m not sure. Not right now. Not right now.”On if he’s seen Fred Tiller respond to the challenge from those freshman corners: “Yeah. Yeah, I have. I’ve seen Fred practicing hard. Made a couple plays today. He’s out there. He doesn’t have his head down. He’s not out there pouting or anything like that.”On if Courtney Miggins is progressing: “Making progress, yeah, he is. He’s a very good player, very explosive, very active. There’s a few techniques, a few things we’re asking him to do that he hasn’t had to do in a while, so it’s a little bit of a learning curve, but he’s a very good player.”On how concerned he is about linebacker depth: “There’s certainly a little bit of concern. If we can get Flannigan and Josh back completely healthy, that’ll obviously help with the experience inside. And Jabari outside played a lot of football last year. So hopefully we’ll keep it to one position in the starting four with not too much experience, game experience. But again, we just got to develop all those guys. We’re gonna need them at some point in time, so we’re gonna continue to work with all the backers and work some different combinations and get the best guys on the field.”* For instant updates on the Wildcats, follow me on Twitter @KyleTucker_CJ.
