MENTAL HEALTH & MIXED IDENTITIES
This month we are holding space to explore the intersection of our mental health and mixed identity. Being a human is hard work, and taking care of our mental health alongside everything else we deal with daily can seem impossible at times. And yet, we also know that our mind is our control center, and when our mental health is slipping, it affects every other area of our life.

 Monthly Meetup!

    Statistics show that mixed adolescents face higher risk on general health questions, school experience, smoking and drinking, and other risk variables. The most common explanation for the high-risk status is the struggle with identity formation, leading to a lack of self-esteem, social isolation, and problems with family dynamics in mixed households..
    We're Asking: 
    What role does mental health play in your life with your family?
    How do you help yourself maintain a healthy mental state?
    What are signs that indicate your mental health needs help?
    Traumatic events and systems working against different parts of our identities call on us to come together and share our perspective and personal experience in a safe community space. This month’s meetup has explicitly been designed for community involvement so that we can show support for one another’s most whole selves. The wholeness of who you are is accepted here. You are not alone, your feelings are valid. Let your voice be heard, or soak in the experiences of others, knowing there are people out there who feels as you do.
    Do you feel inspired to
     Share your story?

      Meetup Recap
      Watch in real time how our community whiteboard is built on Zoom. We invite all attendees to contribute to the board. For those who are visually impaired, we will be sure to describe what's on the whiteboard. The whiteboard is used as a space for TMS members to share their takeaways from the meetup, the commitments we pledge to make, and a space where people can have fun and draw whatever resonated with them at the event.
