CULTIVATE BRAVE SPACES
These brave spaces will generate sustainability in communities by expanding safe spaces available for the public to engage in community healing, support, and access to mental health resources. The development of brave areas for social sustainability stimulates social interaction, a sense of belonging, and continuous community development. Additionally, brave spaces restore social capital lost due to mental illness, such as housing, education, employment, and community connectedness
PROVIDE PUBLIC EDUCATION
We aim to facilitate public education for individuals and communities to foster social well-being. Social well-being boosts the ability of people to be free from want of basic needs, which allows them to feel authentic and valued. In addition, it provides a sense of connectedness and belonging. Real Queens educates women and young girls on mental health and the power of their voices. As a result, women and young girls level up and willingly advocate for an improved quality of life for themselves and their loved ones. By speaking up, communities can destigmatize mental health and create productive dialogues around mental health.
ACCESS TO COMMUNITY HEALING
Community healing brings together current and future generations for support and resources to improve their daily lives and mental health. Furthermore, Real Queens elected to nurture community healing by developing equitable supports such as workshops, virtual programming, and means of connection to mental health service providers. In judgment-free spaces, women and young girls will receive gender-specific and culturally responsive mental health support regularly
