“The things that make me different, I shouldn’t be ashamed of them. I should be proud of them.” - Naomi Osaka
In celebration of our founder Naomi Osaka’s new position as Chief Community Health Advocate for Modern Health, and in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we’re teaming up with Modern Health for our “I am a proud” social media campaign. The campaign will be featured in NAMIWalks New York City, an event that aims to raise awareness around the importance of mental health, on May 22nd.
Both Modern Health and NAMI’s (National Alliance of Mental Illness) mission around mental health care is to educate, break down barriers to access, destigmatize, and empower everyone to get the support they need for themselves and their loved ones.
Our “I am a proud” campaign’s purpose is to encourage our KINLÒ community to feel comfortable in their own skin by asking them to tell us what they were proud to be in 50 characters or less for a chance to be featured in our affirmation mural on the day of the event.
We are so proud to be partnering with some of the leading voices and educators advocating for mental health care and awareness!
