An organization that helps individuals thrive by lowering the barriers to access and practice mental, physical and spiritual wellness with intention, inclusion and purpose – spaceMVMNT SOUL – showcased its curriculum to Beverly Hills High School students on Sept. 1 for suicide awareness week.
The group connects the power of creativity, arts and music with the power of self in order to make mental health more approachable and accessible to students. It spotlights students’ confidence and creativity, allowing them to express their authentic self and stand in their power.
“We are excited to create a resource for students to be able to talk about and engage with their mental health in a casual yet proactive way. We want students to know that not only are they not alone, but there is also power in their expression which is what we are aiming to facilitate for them,” Derek Jameson and Sheel Bhuta, the leaders of spaceMVMNT SOUL.
Singer, song writer and spaceMVMNT ambassador Jessica Hoover shared her unique and powerful mental health journey with students while also guiding them to create their own masterpiece.
“We are all so grateful and honored to have the opportunity to offer the Space Movement Soul program to Beverly Hills High School students and to kick of our Suicide Prevention Month by showing students how connecting with creativity, arts and looking within can help improve mental health,” BHHS wellness counselor Alison Norman said.
Founder Brit Bronson is a Beverly Hills High School alum.
“Now more than ever, our students need an engaging program that is interactive and inspiring to want to better help their overall mental wellness,” she said.
