8 Ways to advance the #1MillionWell Movement

Commit yourself to the work.

Using approaches that hinge upon Eurocentric values and norms to handle the nuances of the Black experience is oppressive and negligent. We must commit to learning culturally-responsive interventions to effect change in the mental health of Black people.

Register to attend the Black Mental Health Symposium.

The event is virtual, affordable, and powerful. Register to attend the event on Sept. 9-10.

Take what you learn at the Sympsoium and use it for the improvement of Black clients.

Although you will be affirmed, filled, and empowered through this event, your work will just be beginning. You will be tasksed with taking what you’ve learned and apply it to the Black people you work with. The goal is for us to reach 1 million.

Tell others about the Symposium and invite them to the event.

We will not effectively impact 1 million Black people with the Symposium being a best kept secret. Keeping quiet has hurt the Black community in so many ways, commit to not letting this be one of them. Invite others, you won’t be sorry. Group discounts are available.

Wear merchandise to spread awareness about the Movement even if you cannot attend the event.

In the most perilous times we have been united by statement wear–clothing that bears messages. Even if you cannot attend the event, please consider spreading the word about #1MillionWell to help us reach more people.

Get involved. Conduct research on Black mental wellness and share your findings at the Black Mental Health Symposium.

Research about Black people is still very much lacking in scholarly journals, at professional conferences, and in other places where decisions are made about treatment, funding, pollicy and legislature. Your voice is needed. Come to the Symposium to learn more.

Join our mailing list to stay updated on the event.

We send out monthly email blasts, frequent social media posts about the events and all things on Black mental wellness.

Donate to LifeSkills Cares, Inc. to remove financial barriers for prsopective attendees who cannot afford registration.

Each year, we receive inquiries about schoalrships to waive registration fees for students, displaced employees, or retirees who want to attend the event but cannot. Your financial support enables them to work alongside us to impact the 1 million.
