Silence the shame
LEARN MORE ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH
Silence The Shame
Silence The Shame is an initiative started by music industry veteran Shanti Das under her Hip-Hop Professional Foundation. Shanti has suffered from depression over the years and has also experienced love ones affected with mental health disorders. With Silence the Shame, she hopes to peel back the layers of shame and stigma as it relates to mental health. There are millions of people suffering and they are afraid to speak on it. There’s also a lot that needs to happen in the form of educating people about treatment, support and care.
Shanti hopes to spark a national conversation that will lead to increased awareness and funding to support those living with mental health conditions.
She has enlisted the help of some of her celebrity friends and colleagues to jump-start the conversation including Nick Cannon, Bell Biv DeVoe (BBD), Estelle, Andra Day, Will Packer, Stephanie Mills, Takeo Spikes, Chloe X Halle, Shanice, Flex Alexander, Terri J Vaughn, Nicci Gilbert Daniels and Ed Lover to name a few!
