EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- ABC-7 deepens its commitment to strengthening the Borderland's mental health system through its multi-platform initiative, Be Mindful, by introducing our new wellness reporter, Avery Martinez.

Avery will report on mental wellness in the Borderland and Southern New Mexico in partnership with Report for America. Report for America is a national service program placing more than 60 reporters and photojournalists in positions at local newsrooms nationwide.

“Beyond talented reporters and photojournalists, we actively sought out individuals who see journalism as a calling, who want to make a difference within their communities,” said Earl Johnson, vice president of recruitment and alumni engagement at Report for America. “Together, our early-career and experienced corps members will produce tens of thousands of articles on critically undercovered topics—schools, government, healthcare, the environment, communities of color, and more.”

Avery starts reporting on June 1. ABC-7 launched Be Mindful in February to empower residents through information and education to promote a culture of resiliency, reduce stigma and improve wellness.
