“Mental health issues are on the rise post-COVID and it’s most prevalent in our youth,” said Dr. Yamma Brown, vice president of the James Brown Foundation.
“I Feel Good” Day is dedicated to making mental health services accessible and supporting the mental health of Savannah. "I Feel Good" day will include a morning meditation, Zumba led by Sheena Allen of The Firm Savannah and on-site therapists for quick private counseling sessions -- including Tatiana Cabral of Mas Paz Counseling. The event will also include nutrition and medication support, Pop’s Grillin’ food truck, entertainment, vendors and music by DJ Carlito Baby. Supporting sponsors include: Mas Paz Counseling, Coastal Harbor Treatment Center, The Corner Suite, G100 Savannah's Hip Hop and Throwback station, The Firm Savannah, Beast Mode Savannah and 3 Points Food Court.
“This is a day to be bold about your mental health. Your mental health is a part of your total wellness and this is a day to seek the support you need. Preventive mental health services can save lives and remove the stigma of suffering alone,” added Dr. Brown.
