From Surviving to Thriving

The year 2020 was a time of loss, grief, collective pain, and significant life changes for so many of us.  It is especially important during these times that we all prioritize our mental health and wellness.

As such, Black Mental Wellness launched our first Black mental health and wellness conference with the theme, From Surviving to Thriving.  This conference is dedicated to uplifting the Black community and aims to emphasize the importance of naming our range of feelings, while remaining empowered to heal during these emotionally challenging times.​
