Event description
Black Mental Wellness Weekend is a free community conference focused on building community through healing on Chicago's South side.

About this Event

Black Mental Wellness Weekend is a grassroots community event focused on improving mental health and wellness within Chicago's Black community. Mental Wellness can be seen by some as cold, distant, and out of reach for our community. Black Mental Wellness Weekend seeks to bring mental wellness to our neighborhoods on the South side of Chicago through building community through healing. We have gathered some of the brightest minds in Black mental health and wellness in the Chicago to provide our community with a multitude of ways to connect and heal. We'll have 12 mental wellness workshops, a movie screening, and holistic healing at Haji Healing Salon.

This Event is suited for ALL Black Folks. Adults 18+ can attend.
