Summary

This project will focus on people with mental problem and how we can extend help to them. Mental illness affects people of all ages, education, income levels, and cultures; however, systemic inequalities such as racism, poverty, homelessness, discrimination, colonial and gender-based violence, among others, can worsen mental health and symptoms of mental illness, especially if mental health supports are difficult to access. Major depression affects approximately 5.4% of the Southeast population.
