Mental illness isn’t contagious, but kindness is. Self-care will make you feel vibrant and alive and ready to make a difference in your home, community, country and the world at large! "Be kind to yourself and let your kindness flood the world"~ Pema Chodron . "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” ~ Robert F.

At the February meeting for the Committee of Racial Justice, Painted Brain’s co-founder, Rayshell Chambers, spoke about intergenerational trauma in the Black community and the ways in which PB is prepared to tackle the issue.

During COVID quarantine and isolation, we have seen that the number of people of color asking for mental health services is steadily rising, and the PB team has done their best to meet the demands of the South LA community.

Chambers and her team at Painted Brain are also working as a part of the Black Mental Health Task Force, a coalition dedicated to meeting the mental and physical needs of the Black community to improve overall well being. Chambers said that Painted Brain will be continuing to address intergenerational trauma and a technological divide as a way to bring the vision of the task force to life.

Rayshell explained:

“What we do at Painted Brain to address generational trauma is use a multi-disciplinary approach,”

“Occupational therapists, licensed social workers and peers like me with lived experience [come in and] provide psycho rehabilitation groups to help [individuals] learn skills to better themselves.

"We use sensory integration toys to help individuals or children that might need more support with engaging in the classroom setting or at home.

“Painted Brain is a technology company. We also utilize technology to address the digital divide that’s caused [by] trauma in the home in addition to education disparities.”

“So we’ve been educating communities of color. We’re going to come in providing occupational therapists, we’re coming in providing licensed social workers and providing digital health literacy training so that we can address the digital divide in our communities.”
