About Mental Health Foundation

The Mental Health Foundation is working in a team effort to realizing its dedication to providing the best psychiatric care the island of St Maarten can access.

Through the assistance of the Island Government, the MHF board, the MHF Staff, volunteers and partners, the Foundation has moved from its humble beginnings to a full-fledged psychiatric care system offering quality care on St. Maarten as well as to other neighboring islands like St. Eustatius, Saba, Anguilla .

We are currently financed through a subsidy from the Island Government, a budget from AVBZ for chronic care, and reimbursements for services received through our clients’ health insurances.
