Rotary District support for Mental Health in Marbella

Rotary District support for Mental Health in Marbella

Sunday, 12. April 2015 - 21:30

Did you know that, over the course of a lifetime, one in four people will suffer from some form of mental illness?  For many years now mental health has not had the attention it deserves, indeed those with problems can be ignored or stigmatised. The organisation Acepsa aims to change this through giving people the facts about mental illness, and creating centres where people and their familes can have support and treatment.A recent report showed there was a lack of resouces for diagnosis and treatment on the Costa Del Sol, particularly for children and adolescents. 
One of these centres, Los Olivares de Marbella, is supported by our Rotary District. President Elect Anders attended the inauguration ceremony, and reports that the Town Hall much appreciates the support of Rotary in helping address these serious local problems.
