“Stronger Together” campaign to highlight importance of psychosocial support during times of stress and crisis

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, July 27, 2020 – The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) today launched the “Stronger Together” campaign to assist communities in promoting mental wellbeing and positive coping strategies during times of stress and crisis.

The campaign, which is launched as countries of the Caribbean navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing hurricane season, aims to raise awareness of mental health and provide tools and information to promote psychosocial support.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed our lives in unprecedented ways, triggering reactions of fear, depression, anxiety and worry. These effects will likely be exacerbated as countries face the 2020 hurricane season. We appreciate the partnership with CDB to launch The Stronger Together campaign, which aims to build resilience and help people remain calm, connected, safe and hopeful,” said Jessie Schutt-Aine, PAHO Subregional Program Coordinator, Caribbean.
