May is the National Metal Health Awareness Month to end stigma around mental health. Centro SOL launched the campaign Fortalece Tu Bienestar – a Spanish language campaign to educated and support Latinos in their journey to healing.
Fortalce tu Bienestar is launched in the framework of a multidisciplinary research study to understand the perceptions about mental health and depression of Latinos that was conducted in 2019.
The campaign was launched with culturally appropriate information shared on social media. As part of the campaign, our team launched the website fortalecebaltimore.org that is a clearinghouse of information and local resources.
