During this very special Glitter Meetup, we will feature Team CommUNITY’s new director of Community Mental Health program, who will talk about the 2020 Community Health Report: Building Stronger Communities - The case for mental health support for digital rights defenders.”
This is a great opportunity to share your reactions to the findings, and provide input on the psychocare services and workshops Team CommUNITY will be offering the digital rights community in coming months.
The report was designed to help validate digital rights defenders' experiences in the last year, while allowing them to better identify what specific interventions are needed. It is also a tool to support organisational leaders and decision makers, providing them an evidence base, so they can better strategize and design solutions that help the people they serve become more resilient.
