Red Cross providing free mobile health checks for kids & adolescents

Beginning tomorrow, and starting in West Bay, the Red Cross Mobile Health and Wellness Unit for Children and Adolescents will embark on a 5 week journey across Grand Cayman, until it arrives at East End.

Each day, the unit will park in a different neighbourhood and provide the following checks for teens and adolescents:

Health screening: A doctor or nurse will provide a basic health screening to check on the child/ teen's physical health

Mental health check: A mental health professional will provide a mental health screening to check on the child/ teen's mental health in light of the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures.

The service is accessible by any school aged child, ages 4-17 who resides in the Cayman Islands. Additional support services will be provided as a follow up after the check.
