We, Rebati Santé Mentale, Inc. (RSM) will host our first Annual “Walk for Sanity” on October 6th, 2013 at C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines, Florida. We are a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization of international mental health professionals dedicated to addressing the mental health needs of the Haitian people. All proceeds raised during this 2k walk will go directly to funding our projects and activities both in Haiti and in the US, with the ultimate goal of rebuilding the mental health infrastructure in Haiti.
With a population of about 10 million, Haiti is only doted of two psychiatric facilities: Beudet Psychiatric Hospital, a 150 long term care beds facility and Mars and Kline Psychiatric Center, a 60 acute care beds facility, both located in the area of Port-au-Prince and also affected by the 2010 earthquake. There is also a very limited number of mental health professionals: less than 20 psychiatrists with less than 200 clinical psychologists. The majority of the population has little or no access to mental health care at all.
Join us in "Walk for Sanity" to support our efforts in rebuilding the mental health infrastructure in Haiti.
