OUR HISTORY

“Rebati Santé Mentale” is the logical result of the Haitian Mental Health Smmnit that was convened at the University of Miami on June 26, 27, 2010. That Summit itself resulted from the impetus and urgent necessity for an organized coalition of international mental health professionals to: a) assess the preexisting and post disaster mental health situations of the population in Haiti and in the Haitian Diaspora; b) develop specific strategic goals and action plans for working collectively in addressing mental health needs of Haitians; and c) create a network of mental health professionals and stakeholders aimed at addressing behavioral health needs of Haitians.
