Glasswing International, based in the Global South, is an organization with fifteen years of experience and proven results in mental health work. We develop and implement diverse programming in Latin America and the Caribbean, putting mental health at the center of solutions to the most pressing challenges of our time. Our work has been extensively evaluated by the World Bank and other organizations.

We build trauma-informed mental health ecosystems in partnership with public health providers, educators, law enforcement, government and migration officials and the private sector. We work to design local solutions, increase access to critical mental health support, and make mental health a priority in local and international development agendas. Evidence has shown that these areas of work — both independently and collectively — deliver deep community impact.

As Latin American communities face poverty, violence, migration, and the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health is more important now than ever. Our team of international development experts and mental health specialists brings proven approaches to addressing mental health with a wide range of community and institutional stakeholders. Our goal is to equip as many individuals and organizations as possible with the ability to carry out mental health interventions, services or meet broader programming goals that will allow for positive and sustainable change.
