Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation

Ahhhhhh mental health – the black sheep of the health family.  Why do we hide from mental health so fervently?

I am always ecstatic when celebrities use their platform for positive exposure, but this is extraordinary.  Taraji P. Henson launches a mental health foundation in honor of her father Boris Lawrence Henson.

The vision of the Boris L. Henson Foundation “is to eradicate the stigma around mental health issues in the African-American community.”  This literally makes my heart smile!

Check out the link below. Ebony highlighted her recent accomplishment.

This is noteworthy for several reasons. Henson was abused by her father. How often do you see a person pay homage to their abuser? This is a pure exemplification of survivor mentality.

On top of that, the BLHF also provides scholarships to students studying in the mental health fields. WE NEED MORE OF THIS!

I am so here for this!!!

Love & Light, Fam!
