Show Notes

As we close Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, we take a look at one of the most vital domains for the exploration of lived mental health experience: art. Our guest is Velta Brenya, a recent graduate from The University of Texas at Austin, and her unique project: The Double Diversity Digital Art Gallery. Velta created the Double Diversity Digital Art Gallery to highlight the experiences of Black, neurodiverse college students. In a bonus segment, we preview next month's podcast interview with Adrian Fowler, the first Black program officer to work for the Hogg Foundation.
