Partnerships drive the customized programming and service offerings for TERRA.
From trusted neighborhood organizations to national institutes to emergency collaborators, partnerships are integral to TERRA outreach. Our aim is to facilitate conversations across sectors, giving our community and policy leaders the tools to become trusted partners in creating safe and reliable spaces for mental health care. Partnership groups include:
- Mental health
- Religious organizations
- Farmers markets
- Medical universities
- First responders
- Law enforcement
- Convention centers
- Public transportation
Through our truck + mortar model, those leading the mental health conversation are able to bring targeted programming directly to groups in need, exactly when they need it. With trucks that are dedicated to treatment, education, and social connection, we are able to customize each experience to the strategic goals of our partners.
- Pop-up social experience in San Francisco by Mental Health Association in San Francisco (MHASF)
- Mental health crisis relief efforts in Puerto Rico led by Albizu/Community Mental Health Clinic (CMHC)
- Safe self-expression for children dealing with trauma in Syrian refugee camps with Project Amal ou Salam
- Cultural tours in South Africa facilitated by Movement for Global Mental Health (MGMH)
- Mental health education workshops in Bali delivered by Suryani Institute
- Pop-up treatment spaces for LGBTQ in partnership with Todo Mejora
- Pop-up self-care experience in Australia for teens and youth led by Beyond Blue
Public crisis events
Regardless of stigma, we can immediately assist communities on the ground during public crisis events across the globe. Because of the modular construction, trucks can easily be dismantled and shipped where needed. Each effort is led by local mental health practitioners unless further support is required and future build-outs can include bed and toilet facilities.
Social interactions are the gateway into creating a stigma-free culture. By creating interactive experiences geared towards sparking curiosity, we can begin to introduce populations unfamiliar with self-care strategies.
Educational environments open up, expanding to accommodate small groups while still maintaining a dedicated space for learning. Collaborators include our law enforcement, schools, religious organizations, and LGBTQ centers as well as other groups looking for more targeted information.
Our treatment environments provide private, safe and healing environments for individuals to receive specific care. We envision serving our more isolated demographics such as seniors, home-bound caregivers, and new moms as well as partnering with local organizations for a day of pre-scheduled treatment for their community.
