In honor of May Mental Health Awareness Month. This was a public talk created by Marguerite Alexis Ferrera, School Based Programs Outreach Coordinator at the National Alliance on Mental Illness Urban Los Angeles (NAMI Urban LA) in Leimert Park for the Each Mind Matters Holistic Wellness Day put on by Nina Womack. It was sponsored by NAMI Urban LA ( We touched on why people of color should consider going into medicine, being open to sharing our stories, holistic mental health care, and understanding policy better and knowing your rights. The more we know, the better we can do. Lets keep fighting stigma one day at time, together we are stronger.
