What are ya doin this spring break mon!? Come with us to assist the Committee for the Upliftment of the Mentally Ill in helping those suffering from homelessness and mental illness. There are many stigmas regarding individuals with disabilities in Jamaica that still exist today. We hope to combat these stigmas by working with the individuals through different activities working to improve their health, mental stability and quality of life! With CUMI’s limited resources we will be using our creativity and own resources to continue to improve their community.
