Challenge

Guerrero is one of the most violent states in Mexico. One of the ways in which this violence is expressed is the disappearance of people, mostly young men with family, which has left thousands of women and children without their sons, husbands, and fathers. Those tend to develop post-traumatic stress, depression, and anxiety, get isolated from their communities and, in some cases, the violence has fostered the appearance of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and even cancer.

Solution

Psychological and traditional medical attention will be provided to 96 women and children from Guerrero of two groups of relatives of disappeared persons. This attention will consist of traditional Mexican medicine, herbal medicine, and nutrition plans, aimed at recovering their physical health. Likewise, they will be offered individual and collective therapy, aimed at their emotional containment, the rethinking of their life projects and the re-establishment of links with their communities.

Long-Term Impact

The psychological and traditional medical attention of those women and children will reduce the physical and emotional damages the disappearance has caused them and will help them to heal in an integral way. Healthier women and children will be able to consider new life projects, continue the search for their missing loved ones, return to their communities as examples of resilience, and become poles of solidarity to which other victims will be able to go, helping to break the circle of violence.
