It is a really good video by Yolo Akili Robinson that talks about mental health, mental wellness, and a bunch of other good stuff I think folks should pay attention to.
Now, I really want to share that video. And if I was a low life cretin, there are ways to extract that video from the web page. But just because you can do something doesn't mean that you should. This is what hurts at the moment but it will pass.
I did find another video that Mr. Robinson has on the BEAM Collective YouTube channel.
The stated purpose of the BEAM Collective is, from their website:
We are a collective of advocates, yoga teachers, artists, therapists, lawyers, religious leaders, teachers, psychologists and activists committed to the emotional/mental health and healing of Black communities.I'm going to plunk this here and get on with the work of the day.
