Creating Connections

Breaking the Stigma

This was a great day at Bethesda Temple Church.  Everyone received the answers they needed to begin taking steps to improve health and wellbeing.  We would love to give a special thanks to Bethesda Temple Church and their staff, Dulan's Soul Food Restaurant and our guest speakers, Dr. Malaika Brown, John Rhoads, Rhonda Dixon, and George Anderson. 

What we loved about this event is that the topic of Health and Mental Wellness is predicated on science.  This is what we gave the community this day.  Real data they can sink their teeth in and do something about it.  Helping and informing others is the key to our success!  Thank you for a successful event.

Mental Health Awareness Month (May) in Los Angeles County

This year, Follow The Leader Foundation has partnered with the California Mental Health Services Authority to take on the challenge to build on mental health awareness and to break the stigma behind seeking help for mental health symptoms.  We want to promote the early detection of symptoms to put in place appropriate interventions to improve health and wellbeing.  Poor mental health can affect your overall health negatively.  So it is essential that community members have access to the qualified support they need.  What does the stigma on mental health do to society?  Let's take a look at California.  CALMHSA reports that "1 in 5 Californians deals with a mental health challenge, and only half (50%) will seek treatment".  Census reports for 2017 the total population in California was approximately 39,500,000.  That's about a total of 8 million people who need mental help and support.  There's approximately 4 million or more out there who are either unaware of or are reluctant to get help.  Compassion is the first step to breaking the barrier to the stigma of Mental Health Wellness.  For access and support click here: Each Mind Matters campaign for mental health.
