Stronger Than The Stigma

We would like to invite you to the STONGER THAN THE STIGMA Mental Health Fair hosted by the Marshall Fundamental Girls Build Los Angeles team on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Marshall Fundamental.

The Team is composed of 31 girls and three advisors. Our team is very diverse, with members ranging from sixth to twelfth grades. On December 15, 2017, forty-five Marshall Fundamental females students and five chaperones attended a GBLA Leadership Summit. There were approximately 10,000 females in attendance, and we heard from many impressive and strong women including; U.S. Senator Kamala Harris; American Business Woman, Bozoma Saint John; Olympic Athlete, Ibtihaj Muhammad; 2016 Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton; and many more. The stories they told were tremendously inspirational and empowering.

Then in September of the 2018-2019 school year a handful of girls took action and formed the Marshall Fundamental GBLA Club. Since then we have organized under a health and wellness platform and have been working very hard in raising awareness in the area of Mental Health Stigmas, and bringing a more friendly and inclusive environment to our fellow Marshall Fundamental community. Our primary goals are to raise awareness, provide prevention information, and intervention resources in the area of mental health stigmas, while also providing our peers with a space for conversation..

As our school year comes to a close we are excited to culminate this year’s project with a Mental Health Fair. We the Marshall Fundamental GBLA Team anticipate making an impact with our school population and the community. At our fair we will have activities booths, yoga, mindfulness, and art. We will extend resources and provide space to learn and reflect. In addition there will be music, guest speakers, fun activities, and more! Please come and participate in our Stronger Than the Stigma Day and Mental Health Fair, we guarantee you’ll have a great time!
