COVID response – Providing Critical Mental Health Support

Published on 1 September, 2020 by Glasswing

As Glasswing continues its support for the immediate and long term challenges brought on by COVID, mental health programs continue to be a critical component. This fall, Glasswing will launch an initiative to support the mental health of COVID-19 frontline workers in Mexico, Colombia, and El Salvador. In partnership with the Motorola Solutions Foundation, the new program will aim to provide psychological support and wellness tools for the support and emotional well-being of doctors, nurses, and paramedics who care for patients with COVID-19. Utilizing WhatsApp groups, phone calls, and other accessible platforms, this support will have an emphasis on the identification, understanding, and self-management of emotions to develop positive coping and resilience skills in participants.
