NNLM/MAR Supports Mental Health among African American Women

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) Mid-Atlantic Region (MAR) is proud to support the Minds Matter Mental Health Campaign, which aims to help break the stigma of mental health among African American women, teens and children in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  

The campaign, being spearheaded by Black Girl Health Foundation, Inc., with funding from NNLM/MAR, features six weekly workshops from Jan. 10 – Feb. 15, 2020, that teach skills to improve mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.  

The Minds Matter Mental Health Campaign tackles depression, stress, anxiety and low self-esteem, as well as the social, economic, racial and cultural disparities impacting treatment. Participants will also learn how natural remedies, such as faith-based yoga, natural supplements and physical therapy, can reduce the symptoms of mental illness without medications.   

Workshops are being held free of charge at the East Shore Area Library and the Madeline Olewine Memorial Library in Harrisburg, Pa. Individuals in or around the area are encouraged to view the schedule and register.

This project is just one of numerous initiatives funded by NNLM’s All of Us Community Engagement Network (CEN) that advance NNLM’s mission to improve public access to health information by partnering with public libraries.
