I've had personal struggles with mental health - both myself - and people very close to me in my family. I have seen first-hand how mental health support can move people towards and through recovery. But, that mental health support all too often is limited, out of reach - either in terms of proximity or financially, or due to stigma. I was thrilled to find this organization raising money to provide therapy for black women and girls, and I hope I can be an ally through this support of mental health that has been so valuable to me.
My own artwork - which focuses on meditational environments in watercolor - has grown out of my experience through a mental health crisis. I hope that I can meet my goal of raising $480 through donations from sales of my artwork, and quite possibly through individuals wanting to donate.
