HIP HOP FOR MENTAL HEALTH is national campaign dedicated to helping young people learn to “beat the blues” with positive mental health tunes. The founder and director is Dr. Patrice Wolters, Licensed Psychologist, who writes mental health lyrics based on over twenty years of experience. The three goals of the initiative are to assist young people and various helping professionals:

1) Identify the red flags for mood disorders;
2) Defeat the stigma related to mental health conditions
3) Help young people manage moods with positive coping tools.

The aim of hip hop for mental health is cultivating the consciousness of empowerment through healing feelings of shame, insecurity, and low self esteem. This objective is based on the premise that everyone should have equal access to health, security, and self-sufficiency. The sense of empowerment evolves as one: a) increases the capacity to master the physical and psychological challenges of life; b) develops positive coping skills that lead to success in life; and c) cultivates self-acceptance, self esteem and compassion for oneself and others. In addition to the songs, there are also articles aimed at reaching the goals of the initiative if you want an alternative to Hip Hop for Mental Health.
