Rapper G Herbo Advocates for Mental Health with 'Swervin' Through Stress' Program

I really wanted to create a space where it's OK for us to talk about what we're going through...
-G Herbo to Billboard.

In lieu of the last day of Mental Health Awareness month, I spotlight another mental health program.  (Chicago, IL) Project Swish partnered with G Herbo to launch SWERVIN' THROUGH STRESS.  This program aims to raise awareness about mental health, reduce stigma associated with mental illness, promote x offer free non-conventional help through behavioral and emotional well-being practices, and  prevent self harm through individual education and quarantine-safe programming.  
SWERVIN' THROUGH STRESS targets African American and Hispanic males of ages 14-25 in the Chicagoland area.

Chicago native, McKinley Nelson, created Project Swish Chicago following a personal epiphany and passion to pay it forward to his community.  The foundation was launched in Summer 2018 and continues to flourish with events and charities.
