As young women of color, we find help and healing together — with our families, loved ones and communities.
Today, young women of color are at greater risk for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and suicide and face inequitable access to care and treatments. Yet, when we do access care that speaks to our identities, cultures and histories, we find the support we need to thrive.
The Steve Fund’s “Shine Your Light” campaign centers the mental health and wellness of young women of color. Together with partners, experts and young women, we seek to shed light on culturally-responsive resources while elevating the inner light of young women of color through stories and community conversations.
Together, with support, knowledge and care, we will SHINE!
