Conversations Cafe: Mental Health & Intersectionality
Today's Conversations Cafe episode is titled Mental Health & Intersectionality. Recorded live at the UIC Forum, as part of Hope for the Day's Conversations Summit 2019 and hosted by Hope for the Day COO Carl Evans, this panel focused on addressing the nuances of stigma and mental health in an intersectional context for issues affecting people of color, individuals among LGBTQ+ populations and immigrants. These challenges are compounded further by historic elements within America, such as racism, non-secular and secular prejudices, cultural and language barriers.
Our panelists include:
- Hannah & Charlie Lucas, creators of the NotOK App
- Brandon Breaux, Chicago-based artist & designer
- Elise Swopes, photographer, creative, and influencer
- Nick Heineman, Project Manager at SocialWorks
- Dr. Nneka Jones Tapia, currently of Chicago Beyond and more amazing credentials than we can name in our short intro!
Hope for the Day's inaugural Conversations Summit 2019 educated, inspired, and activated attendees with an exciting mix of breakout sessions created and led by diverse groups of youth, mental health professionals and academic partners, covering a vast spectrum of topics from mental health, arts, and technology, to social justice and activism. The summit was graciously hosted by The University of Illinois at Chicago at the Isadore & Sadie Dorin Forum (The Forum).
