How does technology impact Mental Health & Fashion?
In 2019, our founder, Joy Adeyemi, made a decision to no longer remain silent about the challenges her family faced with mental health by hosting a holiday gala to raise funds and awareness for mental health.
Her story is not one that is unique but it is one that isn’t talked about nearly enough. Life threw a curveball when her brother was diagnosed with schizophrenia in his final year of college at Penn State University. For years she kept this from even her closest friends because of the stigma associated with mental health issues. As a woman of color, it made it that much more difficult to even ask for help to process/understand the uncertainty and fear that ensued. Fast forward 20 years, as a mother, executive, girlfriend, friend, sister, etc. she no longer wants to be silent.
This December, she is hosting her 3rd annual holiday gala. The gala is an opportunity to get fabulous and mingle with great minds who are also passionate about this topic. After each gala, more and more people are enlightened, building great networks and lifelong bonds. Thank you to everyone who has supported us and encourage us to keep going!
This year the focus will be on mental health & fashion as it was last year with a twist of how technology plays a huge role in this space. You won't want to miss it!
