Mental health booth installation to come to the Borderland

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- El Paso has won a national contest to receive a Hope Booth. A Hope Booth is a mental health installation telephone booth that helps connect people with local mental health services and support. The Hope Booth offers 3-minute interactive experiences to users in need of a pick-me-up.

The contest was launched on May 1st. After over a thousand comments, El Paso came out on top.

The Hope Booth aims to bring inspiration and hope to those seeking it.

"If you watch someone experience the Hope Booth, you can see the immediate relief on their faces. You can see the immediate hope transit through them," said Ariadna Garcia, Volunteer. "I really think this will impact our community greatly, It'll be a huge benefit to us, like I said, I think being in the Borderland is a very special place where hope is needed. And not only hope, but help is needed as well."

Garcia said the Hope Booth is set to arrive in the coming months.

She said talks are underway to decide where it will be placed in the Borderland.
