First mental health facility to rise in Caraga region

Surigao City (February 1) -- The region's first mental health facility will soon rise in Caraga region's nickel city of Surigao.

The formal ground breaking of the site for the construction of the building was held over the weekend right behind the Surigao City Health Office.

It was attended by top local government health officials led by Surigao City Mayor Alfonso S. Casurra and City Councilors Peņaflor Laxa and Floripen Tating, region's health Asst. Regional Director Dr. Cesar Cassion and Program Manager on Drug Abuse Dr. Flordeliz Llesis and City Health Officer Dr. Aldine Morales.

During the ground breaking program, Mayor Casurra emphasized that the center will initially serve as a half-way house for the temporary accommodation and treatment of said patients.

"Let us help these people today because tomorrow will be too late. They are also human beings who need care and attention," he said.

Meanwhile, the local government of Surigao City is also set to construct a school building in a new site of Cantiasay National High School also of that same city.

The new school building is targeted to be completed by the end of June this year.

Casurra wanted students to have a more conducive place for learning.

At present, the high school students are temporarily sharing an area with the elementary pupils. (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
