New Narratives encourages us to discuss mental wellness and the nuances of our experiences. In celebration of Black mental health week, we gather to explore cross continental and intergenerational mental health. Hearing from intersectional film makers, highlighting mental health for Black women, queer communities and those of us often pushed to the margins.
#MyMindMyMagic: Black Mental Health Week encourages folks of various identities to feel supported and apart of the Black mental health conversation. Each section is led by Black community members, artist and educators. We aim to create an inclusive space for those who often feel left out of mental health dialogues.
Adornment Stories believes in empowering Black women, femmes, queer, trans and non-binary folks to tell their stories through a plurality of creative means. We provide mental wellness inspiration, arts education and a platform for the voices of those who are often left out of mental health dialogue. Our model focuses on recognizing the unique ways gender, race, sexuality, and the fullness of our experiences impact mental health.
