Saudi mulls privatising psychiatric hospitals

RIYADH, October 1, 2017

Saudi Arabia is considering plans to privatize all mental health hospitals and build independent shelter homes for rehabilitating patients left to wander in the streets, a report said.

“The ministry issued two orders in April-May to open mental health wings at public and private hospitals having more than 100 beds and mental health clinics at hospitals having less than 100 beds,” Abdul Ghani, director general of mental health was quoted as saying by Saudi Gazette, which cited Okaz.
