As you know, access to affordable mental wellness services is a luxury that is not readily available to everyone. Mental health is vital to your overall health. When mental health is neglected, it affects how we think, feel, and act, it helps to determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make decisions. Mental health is important at every stage of someone’s life and should never be ignored. Some examples of common mental health issues include anger, anxiety, depression, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), and borderline personality disorder (BPD).
Unfortunately, there is one mental health not often spoken about especially within the black and latino communities and that is postpartum depression. Black and latino women are 3 times likely to suffer from postpartum depression and even double will go untreated. As such, Conscious Lee is committed to spreading awareness on postpartum depression, by connecting families to available resources that'll provide services for families.
We will be honoring 20 birthing people in the month of October in form of a baby shower. The event will focus on providing resources, gifts and additional support for birthing people who are within the 2nd trimester and fall in the low-income rage category. The purpose is to provide overall holistic wellness awareness.
We created a postpartum self-love box that promotes, kindness, wellbeing, mindfulness, creativity, motivation, inspiration and love. Each item were carefully chosen to help ease and soothe during the postpartum period. By becoming a sponsor you are helping to uplift a person in need who may be struggling with their physical or mental health. The recipient will be chosen from a list of people who have been nominated by members of the ConsciousLee Community.
Please note: By sponsoring a self-love box you will not receive a box in the post, If the gift is before the Community baby shower it will be given to them then, otherwise we will send it directly to a person in need. To protect the recipient’s privacy the name won’t be made public. If you would like to include a note with your box, please add to the message box and we will make sure your message reaches the recipient.
These boxes are special and you are given the opportunity to curate the perfect wellness box for the birthing person. As a sponsor, celebrate your participation in contributing to the mental health and well-being of those in need.
From the bottom of my heart - Thank you for choosing ConsciousLee and, in turn, supporting the noble efforts of mental wellness in the black and brown community.
CEO of Conscious Lee
