Miss Monina Thompson

Monina Thompson is a proud Caymanian from the district of George Town. She joined the Alex Panton Foundation Youth Ambassador Programme (YAP) to fuel her passion for helping the youth and to voice her opinions on mental health. Along with other YAP students, Monina met with the Governor to discuss the impacts of the pandemic and the changes they would like to see happen in the near future. Some issues they spoke about were creating a 24-hour mental health hotline and the decriminalisation of suicide. Monina has faced her own challenges with mental health and wishes to see her island adopt a proactive way of addressing these issues.
