Please come forward. We take the responsibility of delivering your support to the people who need it most on the ground. It's time to make empathy go viral.

Mental and Emotional Well-Being of Residents in Informal Urban Settlements
Mental and emotional well-being is negatively amplified under the current COVID-19 environment, with poorer working adolescents and youth left without a daily wage. James P Grant School of Public Health, in partnership with the ARISE Bangladesh team and Imperial College (UK), is carrying out rapid appraisal interviews with informal urban settlement residents. This can contribute to service delivery organisations to design interventions that can better meet the mental and emotional needs of these communities.
