Rotary Club donates recorders for research

POSTED: 01/29/13 12:54 PM

St. Maarten – The Mental Health Foundation is embarking on an effort to collect data regarding the disease burden of psychiatric disorders on St. Maarten. This research, which is called: “School prevalence of select childhood psychiatric disorders in St. Maarten” will help the foundation with planning for the future.

Other contributors towards this project are the American University of the Caribbean, University of Louisville, Kentucky and Parnassia Bavo Group in the Netherlands. During the foundation’s New Year’s reception last Friday, the Rotary Club donated 10 Sony ICD- AX412 Digital Flash Memory Voice Recorders which will be used in the process of collecting data.

As the presentation was being made, club members were honoured to be joined by Governor Eugene Holiday as a former member of the Rotary Club. The Rotary Club continues to raise funds particularly for youth community projects; last year the grand fundraising, which was held on the biggest cruise ship visiting the island, Oasis of the Seas, raised funds for youth leadership.

This year again funds will be raised in the Valentine’s Day car raffle and will also go toward projects related to special needs children as well as youth and other community service projects.
