Introducing "Rise Above" - Vox Culture's 2019 initiative on Mental Health!

We are pleased to announce that for 2019, Vox Culture is introducing a new advocacy subject matter into its periphery, Mental Health! Via our 2019 partnership with Mental Health America of Greater Houston, Comcare, and the Houston Grand Opera, we aim to educate, fundraise, and develop creative awareness campaigns and community service projects that tackle mental health stigmas associated with varying social issues that Vox Culture has previously focused on. As such, and with our primary goal of empowering all Houstonians who are facing mental health stigmas, we have titled pur 2019 initiative as "Rise Above".
Vox Culture's goal for 2019 is to showcase mental health in different perspectives of causes that Vox has focused on in the past years, and develop creative programming that empowers and encourages the rethinking of how we view and treat those with varying mental health challenges/stigmas.
With our partners help, Vox Culture will aim to focus on mental health, the cultural stigmas that surround it, and how it impacts survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, immigrants, refugees, race relations (racism), the education field, those who have previously abused substances, the homeless, those impacted by various environmental issues, and individuals who have struggled with hunger/thirst issues - highlighting mental health issues that exist within each group.
