Mental Health is one of the many areas that the Trinidad and Tobago Red Cross Society ( TTRCS) have been working in for many years and during COVID is no exception. We recognized that persons have been and will be faced with challenges that may exceed their normal stress levels which can overwhelm their coping mechanisms.
