Do you intend to implement your idea in Peru?

  • Yes

In what countries do you expect to implement your idea initially (in the first 2 years)?


Feasibility: where are you with understanding the feasibility of your idea? Describe what you’ve accomplished to date, what barriers to implementation might exist, and what next steps you plan to take.

Mental Health Trust has won the SDG challenge run by Goodwall (App for Youth leadership deveopment). Economic barriers to implement Mental Health Awareness campaigns. MHT is willing to work with volunteers and partnership with other local actors in order to create a higher impact in society.

Viability: what needs to be true for you to be able to implement your idea? What stakeholders, partnerships and resources might be required to implement this solution?

We need the partnership with an Incubation center to help us to reach more Mental Health practioners who might be interested in the project. MHT is also looking for seed capital to run online social media campaigns and interact with the stakeholders (All : youth and elders).

Adaptability: how does your idea adapt to frequent changes within the context you are implementing, due to COVID-19? Consider the rapidly shifting government policies, and healthcare economic realities that might influence end users.

With MHT we are making accesible Mental Health Care for everybody in different languages ( English, Spanish).
