Recruitment is the biggest problem facing mental health care in Jersey.
He says the island has experienced a ‘constant challenge’ in recruiting sufficient staff to do the jobs that are needed.
He also acknowledged more needs to be done to improve the island’s current acute mental health facility, Orchard House.
We’ve done what we can to improve it in the building it is, but it’s a poor building, it’s not a good therapeutic environment, but there are improvements being made to try and make life that bit more attractive there for the people we ask to stay there.
– Deputy Richard Renouf, Jersey’s Health Minister
