Showing where the nearest help is.
WHAT IS THE MENTAL HEALTH AWHERENESS PROJECT?
This project aims to have an online platform for mental health awareness and a crowd-sourcing page to map mental health services to provide information for people to seek professional help without telling others until they’re ready to do so. We also aim to work with policy-makers to increase access for all by showing them where services are needed through our crowdmap.
Free offline mental health and mapping workshops using OpenStreetMap (MapContrib)
