Mental health happens in community

In Ecuador, 3 out of 4 of people suffering from mental health problems don’t receive the help they need

Depression is tied to poverty, social isolation, physical illness
and even a shortened life.
It’s time for this to change

Our 4 step community-based approach

1. Community Training: local community members are trained as support group leaders

2. Community Outreach: people suffering from depression invited to neighborhood support groups

3. Community-led Support Groups: where people learn new skills and support one another

4. Depression is Eliminated or Reduced
