Taraji P. Henson teamed up with Tupac Amaru Shakur foundation

Putting out positivity due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Taraji P. Henson is someone who is known for advocating for mental health. Her and her foundation, Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, teamed up with the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to help and provide mental health support for people that’s on the front lines such as our first responders and essential workers. TASF was founded by our late rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur. Organizations have launched the Matching Gift campaign to provide access to mental health therapy. Patients that are dealing with their mental health issues will be directly linked to therapists to help them cope due to this sad time we are facing as a result of Covid-19. TASF has donated $25,000 and will be matched and donated to BLHF to support the campaign financially. The organizations play a factor in the cost of therapy due to lack of work and money in our Black communities, which can be very stressful. So BLHF decided to launch the Covid-19 free virtual therapy support campaign to help raise money to provide mental health services in areas that are low-income networks. Taraji said it best by stating, “No one should suffer in silence,”... “Our vision is to change the perception of mental health in the black community. Together, we will make a difference. This is our legacy.” With these wonderful organizations, they want to help everyone, especially black communities that don’t have the proper income right now and that are suffering in silence due to this pandemic. They are willing to help communities have a voice and speak on their traumas and issues. It is an unfortunate time dealing with this virus, but with help and support from organizations like this, they are trying their best to help us during this sad period of time.
