to make a great dream come true, the first requirement is a great capacity to dream, the second is persistence.

Mental Health- Salud Mental

An excerpt from an interview with our board chair, Blanca Valencia

Contigo Wellness’ slogan, “You matter,” summarizes the central message of this campaign: every life is valuable, every emotion is important, and every experience can become an opportunity for growth and connection with others.

During Mental Health Awareness Month, and every month of the year, let us remember that we are not alone in our struggles and that seeking support is the first step towards a full and healthy life. Because, as Valencia says, “your life matters, your life is necessary, your life is worth it.”
