CHAPTER OF UNDERSTANDING

Blessings, blessings( in my Frank voice ;)) 




It is with such great excitement that I can FINALLY disclose details about Chapter of Understanding , the BABY that I’ve been working on along with 15 immensely gifted and amazing creatives!

Led by Anthony J. Thomas, Chapter of Understanding is an alternative youth suicide awareness initiative based in New York City. We view ourselves as products of the urgent wishes and desires of those who have found refuge in the arts for emotional expression and discourse. Using arts, new media and the integration of emotional and social identity development within academic communities as our tools of advocacy, we hope to create an open, honest and sustainable environment surrounding discussion of mental health, depression, and suicide. 

With mental health, including depression and suicide, continuing to influence people of all communities, ages, genders, sexual orientations, and races, we felt a need to create an alternative platform for expression, discussion, safety and more than anything, hope. As a result, I am so excited to share with you guys, Chapter of Understanding’s first offering to today’s discussion of mental health, performance art project, ”C.O.U”! ”C.O.U” will highlight mental health and depression, both provocations of suicide prevalent in today’s adolescent community on September 6, 2014 at El Museo del Barrio.

I would love if you guys joined me on this journey and in support of our project as we #createwithhope. Additionally, please stay tuned to the Chapter of Understanding, through our website,www.chapterofunderstanding.org or FB to stay connected!

Love you guys!
