Second Report - ESCAPE Puerto Rico Project

ESCAPE continue its offering of specialized services to children and their families in Puerto Rico to address and prevent post-traumatic stress disorders resulting from Hurricane Maria to minimize the occurrence of child abuse and family violence.

To this date, 38 persons have received psychological and support services. Of these 80% are females. There have been cases of pre-existing mental health conditions as depression, anxiety and stress that worsened after the beginning of hurricane season (2019). Other cases have been of parents looking for tools and support to handle diagnoses of their children, which after the hurricane worsened as: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, others.
