The Health and Wellness cluster has three programmatic sub-areas:
The Family Medical Clinic provides comprehensive healthcare to adults and children twice per week and a specialized clinic on women's reproductive health monthly. Some of most conditions treated include hypertension, diabetes, skin disorders, gastrointestinal diseases and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Counselling services are offered four days per week for both adults and children. Some of the most common issues among adults involve finances, interpersonal relationships and depression while most children are brought in by their parents for behavioural problems.
The Senior's Club was created based on a need for the elderly who lived in the surrounding communities to have a safe space to meet and socialize with their peers as well as to receive practical support in terms of food, medication and counselling. The club meets once per week. However, many members also participate in special group outings, attend the weekly Family Medical Clinic, and "hang out" at the Centre whenever they desire.
Medical clinics are held twice weekly. A small fee is charged, however patients are still able to see the doctor even if they are unable to pay.
Eight hundred and Forty Seven persons (616 females, 231 males) accessed the Clinic in 2010.
Pap smear testing are offered once monthly for a small fee.
Over a 6 month period using funds provided by the US Embassy, HIV/AIDS workshops were held with students and adults from the Lyndhurst/Beechwood Community, schools in the neighbouring vicinity and five communities in St. Thomas. The sessions provided information on the disease, and discussed issues related to prevention, discrimination, gender and sexuality. Participants were encouraged to explore the issues through games, drama and discussion. Demonstrations on the proper use of condoms were also done.
Increase contact in the communities by having a monthly community walk to meet and introduce more persons to the health services offered at the Centre.
