THE PLUG presented by PureSpark and the Museum of Science, Boston

Doors at 6:30pm, Program begins at 7:00pm

Let PureSpark and the Museum of Science help you navigate your mental health by connecting you with the right resources in a special evening of dialogue and community.

Start the night with a keynote presentation examining what is really getting in the way of mental health within the Black community. You will then have the opportunity to connect with a range of therapists and wellness providers during a meet-and-greet in the Museum’s Blue Wing. (All you need to set up your first appointment is your health insurance information.)

When Pure Spark first launched, they recognized a few disparities in the community related to mental health, mainly the lack of Black therapists in the Massachusetts area and an inability to adequately connect individuals to available therapists due to low income and/or insurance type. As an organization, PureSpark’s mission is to help Black people living in the Greater Boston area along on their wellness journey from beginning to end. From education (learning about the symptoms of depression and anxiety) to implementation (practicing yoga and seeking out a therapist). They help fill the gap and take the guesswork out of wellness and help to empower those who want to start on their own personal healing journey. Their end goal is to work toward creating a healthier and more peaceful community where people respond versus react; where a mental health diagnosis is no longer looked at as a death sentence; they aim to end the stigma in their community

This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
