We provide individual and family psychotherapy (Mejor Vida) with Counseling/Dance Movement Therapy (CODAMO), educational workshops for the community, local schools in the north area, and disaster relief services to refugees of 2020 earthquake and aftershocks at PR's south. They need help and strategies to deal with psychological distress caused by the disaster. Help us improve the wellbeing of families, one person at a time, transform their lives, empower them to lead more fulfilling lives.
In Puerto Rico 9.7% of adults experience some form of depression, 12.5% suffer from anxiety disorders, suicide rate is high. Economic and social problems affect mostly children, teens, the elderly, and underprivileged. We've had an increase in demand for our services among low income population, since 2017 impact of hurricane Maria and 2020 earthquake and current aftershocks. We need to boost our programs with more professionals, resources and therapies for our local community and PR's south.
Your donations will allow us to offer more psychological services, counseling, therapies, integrate new services, improve administrative support, acquire materials to make better assessment and treatment, impact more schools, elderly homes, and communities in the northern part of Puerto Rico. We are also traveling one day a week to the southern towns of the island making interventions with earthquake refugees, children and adults. Your donation can support this disaster relief effort.
As a community rooted organization, we have been providing services for 5 years; your donation will sustain and ensure that people in these communities can receive the emotional support they need to overcome adversity and develop the skills to go on with their lives, be strong and productive in a long-term basis. Our program impacts children as well as teens and adults. By empowering people to gain control of their emotional wellbeing we build a stronger community.
