Mental Health Monday: People Pleasing (3/29/21)

We’ve all been there: feeling burnt out and exhausted, but still feeling the need to make decisions to please others, even our own expense. Hear some encouraging words from Kali and Kala on how to approach setting healing boundaries and how we can choose ourselves as an act of love. We can’t pour from an empty cup, y’all!

Join us on IG the last Monday of every month for our Mental Health Monday live chats.

Mental Health Monday: Transformative Justice for Black Women (8/31/20)

We’re back ya’ll! Tune into this video to see Katrina and Kala kick off their monthly conversation on community wellness by discussing the elephant in the room: Black women are unprotected and unheard. What does care look like when harm has occurred? What possibility does transformative justice provide us?

Minority Mental Health Month: Prioritizing Mental Health (7/01/20)

Starting off Minority Mental Health Month right with discussions of our own personal experiences with mental health this month and potential topics for the future! There’s a lot going on in the month of July and it can be easy to be carried away with the stress of it all, so it’s important that we take a step back to make sure we’re prioritizing our mental health during this time.

Minority Mental Health Month: Burnout and Rest (7/29/20)

It’s the fifth and final week of Minority Mental Health Month chats with Katrina and Kala! We want to leave you with the following questions: What does care feel like for you & how do you practice care to prevent burnout? Don’t let the conversation just end here, however! We encourage you all to have these kind of conversations with others more often in the future as well and if you’re in need of guidance, always feel free to reach out to either of us on any of our social media platforms.
