Event description
Vahnesa's View presents "Mind Your Mental", a panel discussion about mental health in the Caribbean community powered by Haitians Who Blog.

About this Event

Mind Your Mental was created by Vahnesa Jourdan and powered by Haitians Who Blog, to encourage the conversation about mental health in the Caribbean and Black community. Growing up in the Haitian community Vahnesa noticed that there was a negative stigma associated with mental health. It wasn't until Vahnesa experienced a personal mental breakdown and witnessed it happening to some of her loved ones, that she began to recognized the value in minding her mental.

When we talk about being healthy the mental aspect (which is extremely important) is always the last to be addressed. In the Caribbean community seeing a therapist/psychiatrist is not considered as something a person of color should do. Instead we are told to pray. Although prayer can be a great way to heal there are multiple ways that can aid in recovery from mental health issues. Mind Your Mental is event to remind you to pay attention to your emotions. You can mind your business if you don't MIND YOUR MENTAL.

This is event is for anyone who has experienced event the slightless bit of stress. Help us continue the conversation about mental health in the Caribbean and Black communities. *PLEASE READ GENERAL TICKET INFORMATION FOR MORE DETAILS*
