BGHF Minds Matter - Houston

Black Girl Health Foundations Minds Matter Houston is a program in partnership with community libraries that are designed to reach out to 92 of color in the Houston DMA area and educate them about mental health and mental health resources. In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic; a lack of certainty about the end or extension of quarantining, social distancing requirements, and civil unrest; offering digital mental health literacy couldnt be timelier and more crucial. BGHF is prepared to transition Minds Matter into a series of digital workshops and a live stream event on Facebook through several several pages including Black Girl Health Foundation BGHF, Prairie View A&M University, and Community Engagement Network and its partners.
