Christiane Manzur, President of WBC Cares Mexico, and Elizabeth Reyes, Executi e Secretary of WBC Cares, spoke to the students of the bachelor’s degree in Psychology and other careers at that university about the importance of mental health.
“Mental health is an aspect that should be a priority in our lives, just as we seek to be healthy in body, so we have to do it in our minds.
Undoubtedly when they ask me who I would approach for advice, it would be a boxer as they are an example of life. they exude tenacity, effort, work ethic and they are testimony of how you can get ahead through a healthy life,” said Christiane.
Elizabeth Reyes mentioned that one of the objectives of this talk seminar is that “these days are a watershed in some aspect of their lives.
We know the importance of ensuring the mental health of our communities, as well as that they feel motivated by these events, that they find some inspiration in this beautiful experience that they are going to live these days”.
Rocky Heron, a former DEA agent, spoke of the great danger that the world of drugs represents for children and young people, but also of the medication and over-medication that exists today.
“I am here to offer a different perspective, so that through my experiences you know what is in the world of drugs, the true impact they cause on people.
“We are failing to tell you the truth before you make the decisions that change or end your lives, which is why I am here. To remind you that you are the architects of your own destinies. I am very happy to be here with you today”, emphasized this fantastic and truly caring WBC Cares ambassador.
