WHO WE ARE

Who We Are

We are a non-profit organization founded by a group of Puerto Rican psychiatrists living and practicing in the United States. We are committed to Puerto Rico’s mental health and with the mission of fostering efforts that strengthen the island’s mental health services and workforce. In 2014 we started by organizing yearly mental health awareness tours in which we traveled to Puerto Rico to motivate students to pursue medical and mental health careers. Then we arranged community activities, workshops and interdisciplinary forums to educate and motivate communities and students and to share ideas with our peers practicing in Puerto Rico about how to improve and strengthen the island’s mental health care system.

 

Somos una organización sin fines de lucro fundada por un grupo de psiquiatras puertorriqueños en la diáspora. Estamos comprometidos con la salud mental de Puerto Rico y con la misión de cultivar esfuerzos para fortalecer los servicios locales y la fuerza laboral de salud mental en la isla. En el año 2014 comenzamos organizando viajes anuales a Puerto Rico en los que hicimos una serie de actividades para motivar estudiantes a estudiar carreras en las áreas de medicina y salud mental. Luego organizamos actividades comunitarias, talleres y foros interdisciplinarios para educar y motivar comunidades y estudiantes y para compartir ideas con colegas que practican en Puerto Rico sobre cómo mejorar y fortalecer el sistema de salud mental de la isla.
