The CALM Project is a response to increasing reports of acute mental health crises including truancy, self-injurious behaviour, attempts and completed acts of suicide, body image and anxiety problems facing secondary school aged students and young people within the region.

It is collaboration between the NCRHA and the University of the West Indies, and is fully endorsed by the Ministry of Health.

The CALM Project is a multi-disciplinary initiative by health care professionals to engage young people and their families through an interface with schools and communities; to offer clinical services for adolescents in a private, confidential, adolescent friendly environment.

The Clinic specifically targets young people aged 12-19 who have been identified to be ‘at risk’ or already engaged in, or exposed to behaviours that put them at risk for untoward social, behavioural, educational or mental health outcomes.
