In February, RYP is proud to take a dedicated stance on the mental wellness of Black youth with a series of impactful events, including: “Embrace Your Legacy, Ignite Your Future: A Pledge to Black Youth Mental Health”
SOUL Event: Supporting Our Understanding and Love for Black Mental Wellness (February 20-22, 2024)
These events aim to foster open conversations, dismantle stigmas, and create a culture where seeking help is celebrated as a profound sign of strength.
