Challenge

The need to transform the culture of abuse against children and women is urgent in Mexico. These people live in a violent environment where the lack of money is one of the many factors that make people feel depressed. Children and women are often the target when this frustration has to be discharged. There are very few public services to help low-income families when abuse problems arise in the home. The only public Mental Health Hospital that existed in Mexico City has been closed.

Solution

5-month training courses on learning a special methodology to help discharge emotional burdens that often lead to abuse, provided to teachers, social workers, psychologists, and all people working with children.

Long-Term Impact

This project aims to transform the culture of abuse against children and women in Mexico.
