At the beginning of September, eight non-governmental organizations from Mexico and Central America met in Tapachula, Chiapas, to present their guide for the provision of comprehensive attention to migrants in public and private institutions: “Opening Borders with the Heart: Guide for the Application of a Psychosocial Focus in Migrant Contexts.”
This document, published in May 2014, seeks to contribute to the “recognition and implementation of a psychosocial focus in our region of Central America and Mexico, for migrants themselves, their families, and local communities as well as the organizations that work daily to defend their rights.” The guide covers four themes: communities of origin, especially with regards to women; relatives of the disappeared; migrants homes; and teams that work with migrants.
