Our mental health report is based on what Mount Carmel Hospital patients, their families and staff tells us on what the situation is, Mental Health Commissioner John Cachia said.

Interviewed by The Malta Independent editor-in-chief Rachel Attard on INDEPTH, Cachia said that both the National Audit Office report, which was published earlier this month, and the report that the mental health commission published say that patients deserve to be treated with dignity.

Cachia said that the good will of the staff can’t compensate the lack of investment in the infrastructure.
