Audiomack teamed up with G Herbo and board-certified psychiatrist Dr. Jessica Clemons to host a mental health panel on Twitch. The discussion was part of Herbo’s Swervin’ Through Stress initiative, which is designed to help young Black adults get therapeutic resources.
“I wanted to gather everyone to encourage open dialogue so that we not only become a support system for one another but our fans as well,” Herbo said in a press release. “People are hurting. They need to know we understand and are here to offer our resources. Whether we accept being role models or not, we have the influence to help heal.”
“When artists share their experiences with mental illness or lend their voice to conversations about mental health, it helps others to be honest and open about their own experiences,” she said. “This work is an important contribution in the fight against stigma surrounding mental health. It can be the reason a young person decides to seek help.”
Watch the entire panel here and ign up for Herbo’s Dream Team Therapy Fund at his Swervin’ Through Stress website. The fund will pay for 12 weeks of therapy sessions to Black youth from the ages 18-25.
