Government is to release funds to Psychiatric Hospitals in the country.

PRO of the Ministry of Health, Robert Cudjoe said Accra and Pantang Hospitals have their cheques ready.

According to him, that of Ankaful will be ready latest by Friday.

Authorities of the Ankaful Psychiatric Hospital have lamented the lack of funds which they say is affecting the smooth running of the facility and threatened to release the patients.

Mr. Cudjoe said the ritual of lack of funds for the Psychiatric Hospitals will be a thing of the past when the Mental Health Law becomes fully operational.
