Description

The Mental and Emotional Well-Being (MEWB) Community is composed of academics, practitioners, administrators, students/trainees, policy makers, and other stakeholders invested in reducing the prevalence of mental illness and promoting mental and emotional well-being in the Paso del Norte region. The primary purpose of the community is to cultivate a professional, binational, interdisciplinary, MEWB network that engages in informed and meaningful collaborations. By coordinating face-to-face dialogues and utilizing digital platforms that host data and resource sharing, this community of practice will act as a catalyst to empower the broader community to facilitate change in the health of the region.

Aspirations

We aspire to be a community who nimbly responds to the region’s mental and emotional well-being needs by building and maintaining an infrastructure that adopts a common agenda, utilizes shared measurement, engages in mutually reinforcing activities (e.g., teaching, learning, and funding opportunities), and promotes continuous communication.
