FindCareTT.com is the National Mental Health and Psycho Social Support (MHPSS) Directory of Trinidad and Tobago, launched in January 2021 by the MHPSS Technical Working Group, it is coordinated by the Ministry of Health and PAHO-WHO Trinidad and Tobago. Mindwise Project is the owner and developer of FindCareTT.com.
Activated in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mindwise team members Maria O’Brien, Alyssa Khan and Elysse Marcellin led and fulfilled one of the groups’ objectives. These members advocated, advised, researched, designed and built the user interface and platform FindCareTT.com.
The activities of FindCareTT.com and the MHPSS Network is a notable milestone in the development of collective action. Within the professional health system, this fosters increased trust, informed referrals and direct connections. It is a digital solution that we hope to expand throughout the region with current and future partners in the region and globally.
Mindwise Project launched the video series Building Sustainable Minds with the support of the United Nations in 2017. The series features local leaders in mental health who provide insight on matters of mental health relevant and contextual to local communities. These leaders explore current challenges facing our country such as violence and intergenerational trauma; suicide; and workplace mental health.
We named the series Building Sustainable Minds because it is one of our actions as a Civil Society Partner of the United Nations, in pursuit of the Global Goals 2030, in particular Global Goal 3.
This series reveals insights into the local landscape of mental health through the experiences of local mental health professionals whose fingers touch the pulse of our reality here in Trinidad and Tobago. These insights will highlight observations and trends mostly unmeasured and undocumented currently, and also help illustrate pathways to support that are also currently unmapped.
In 2021 as the National Mental Health System is decentralized, Building Sustainable Minds will continue as a journalism series that expands the knowledgebase of local mental health issues, community interventions, analysing and presenting pathways to care for the public.
From inception, Mindwise Project released annual suicide statistics with visualisations that help connect the local community to our local story of suicide. Since this action started, we have built a partnership with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service and other data providers, with the aim of expanding publicly available data which can inform the local mental health responses for the benefit of all.
Mindwise Project plans to deliver a Suicide Prevention National Digital Platform.
