Jonathan Joseph, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. Mary’s North, is expressing deep concern for the number of constituents – especially the youth – who are dealing with mental-health issues on account of unemployment.

Although the employment situation is steadily getting back to normal, as COVID-prevention measures are deployed, many people still remain out of work.

Joseph says he has had to seek the assistance of medical professionals to reach persons whose mental health has been impacted by their economic situation.

Meanwhile, the Candidate says he has made himself available for those who may need assistance not only for their mental health, but in finding employment.

He says that more can be done by the Government to assist the many residents who continue to struggle.
