Tuesday, February 13: The Cultural Stigma Around Mental Health 

There is a historical shame that often stems from a broader cultural stigma surrounding mental health in the Black community. Seeking mental health support can sometimes be viewed as a sign of weakness and something to be ashamed of, but you have the power to change this narrative.

Tuesday, February 27: We Are Talking About It: Breaking through Emotional Hesitation

For some of us, we are taught to keep our feelings to ourselves and so, unlearning these reminders can be the tool to unlock pathways to a more meaningful life.

Tuesday, March 5: Reimagining Self-Care for Black Folks

We all process and cope in different ways. Knowing that you should do what works for you and listen to your own body can be the start of building a simple self-care plan.

Tuesday, March 12: Flip the Script: Empowering Narratives and Uplifting Stories of Hope 

The stories told about Black folks and their mental health may not always be hopeful but today we are channeling a different script towards hope and self-affirmation.
