22 sisters from across Los Angeles County came together for 10 weeks to gain a deeper understanding of the forces that contribute to mental health stigma, anxiety and isolation in Black women and learn coping and support strategies to advance community priorities for mental health advocacy and organizing. Our Los Angeles Cohort has launched it's mental-health focused sister circle and welcomes collaboration with community.
SMM LA hosted a FREE virtual self-care training for birthing mothers on Sundays during the month of August! This training focused on birthing mothers/ persons, and members of a birthing family located in Los Angeles County, to share the types of maternal and postpartum support needed during this pandemic.
