Event description
This half-day mental wellness event aims to redefine the notion of the "strong black woman."

About this event

COVID NOTICE: Masks + social distancing required to attend in person. For your safety and comfort, you also have the option to join us virtually.

BACKGROUND: The concept of the strong black woman is a dangerous myth. Studies have shown that along with the stigma, the belief that we as black women are uniquely resilient to mental distress prevents us from seeking professional mental health treatment when its needed. Join us for lunch and this important discussion if you:

  • Say you are "fine" when you are not
  • Tired of hiding behind a mask of happiness
  • Are afraid to see a therapist
  • Don't know how to find a therapist
  • Feel alone, like others don't "get" you
  • Are the strong friend everyone depends on

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING: During this lunch + panel discussion, four expert panelists will talk about their own mental wellness journeys and how they have REDEFINED what it means to be a strong black woman. You will learn how to:

  • Stop suffering in silence
  • Access culture-centered mental wellness support
  • Find + hire a therapist
  • Start of self-care routine
  • Use coping skills to combat depression + anxiety
