Did this resource motivate you to change your behaviors?

  • Yes

In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?

On the first days of social isolation, when realizing the positive impact on most people's mental health, I forwarded humoristic chearing-up videos, images and audios previously sent to me through whatsapp. But then realized that only some really brought hope and positive mindsets.

Did you share this information with your network?

  • Yes

In what ways did you share this information?

I searched for graphic images and other resources of reliable information to publish online and help my community to deal with the national and international panorama. 

Going to our home's windows and balconies every night at the same hour to applaud our health professionals in the most various ways (clapping, putting the national flag on the window, singing together) created a very positive bond and union between everyone.
