Buena Semilla nurtures the health, wellbeing and self-determination of indigenous and other marginalized populations in Guatemala, engaging women and men to co-author solutions, and co-creating psychosocial health services where there are none

Community health workers in Guatemala will be trained to identify troubled women and support groups will be created to help women to meet specific needs including food and shelter, integrating mental health into existing health programs in marginalized communities.

Stage 4: Transition to Scale

In Guatemala, an estimated 28% of the population can anticipate a mental disorder in their lifetime, with women of childbearing age showing the highest rates of depression and anxiety, especially those living in indigenous areas and poor urban settings. The problems are due in large part to economic hardship and family troubles.
