Through a blend of personal experiences and professional endeavors, Rosales underscored the importance of supporting both the community members and the local leaders serving them. She delved into Brio’s strategies of creating a healthy distance from individual experiences to allow for a broader range of life choices, and using human-centered design to focus on meaningful living under adverse conditions. Rosales highlighted the value of extraordinary partnerships in creating scalable mental health programs and emphasized the need for context-specific approaches to support individuals and foster systemic change.
