No Saints Left Behind Chicago Mental Health & Wellness workshop

No Saints Left Behind is a 501©(3) non – for - profit organization that was established by Arlether Paraharm to help address the various needs within the Roseland Community. Their mission is to provide spiritual, charitable, educational awareness for the development and empowerment of the whole person: mind, body, soul/spirit while exemplifying Christ’s love and compassion through community outreach programs, support, and resources.

On Saturday April 6th Food For Friends partnered with No Saints Left Behind to provide a lunch during their Mental Health and Wellness Workshop that took place at the Blue Door Neighborhood Center on 756 E 111th St, Chicago, IL. The Mental Health and Wellness workshop sparked a crucial dialogue among participants, emphasizing the significance of prioritizing mental well-being in today's fast-paced world. Attendees shared personal experiences, highlighting the pervasive impact of stress, anxiety, and burnout on daily life. The workshop fostered an environment of openness and support, allowing individuals to voice their struggles without fear of judgment.

Key topics included coping mechanisms, self-care practices, and destigmatizing mental health issues within the black community. Strategies like mindfulness, exercise, and seeking professional help were emphasized as vital tools for maintaining mental wellness. Participants also discussed the importance of creating supportive communities both at work and in personal life to foster resilience and empathy.

Overall, the workshop served as a catalyst for introspection and action, empowering individuals to take proactive steps towards enhancing their mental well-being and supporting others in their journey towards better mental health.

This was such an impactful event and No Saints Left Behind was so grateful for the support from Food For Friends and look forward to doing other events together in the future!
