WELCOME TO BIRD'S EYE VIEW
Bird's Eye View is a concept that supports Black minds on their journey of self-discovery. In a literal sense, the bird's eye view is a state of seeing things from a higher perspective. Within Black communities, mental health has been deemed taboo for generations and has seemingly been unacknowledged for far too long. With that being said, Bird's Eye View intends on promoting Black mental health and wellness by connecting the “Black experience” to self-discovery. The overall goal is to connect oneself to their highest state of being.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER
From the well-known saying, "Birds of a feather flock together", this is a collaborative guest blog series with other like-minded, Black intellectuals on their self-discovery journey. With this series, you all will get the perspective of multitudes of young Black mxn and womxn in order to provide a safe space for conversations regarding mental health.
THE RAINBOW WE FLY OVER
This series is dedicated to the many-colored ribbons associated with mental health awareness. This title has two different meanings. First meaning: the stigma about mental health causes us as a people to look over it. Second meaning: we use our wings to overcome our trials and tribulations associated with mental health. Let's bring awareness and overcome our battles!
THE MIND BEHIND THE CONCEPT
Hello everybody! My name is Cheyenne and I am currently a senior in college pursuing a Bachelors’s degree in Psychology. Bird's Eye View is something that I came up with in order to uplift the Black community through mental wellness. Mental health has been deemed taboo within Black households for generations and has seemingly been unacknowledged for far too long. With that being that, I intend on promoting Black mental health and wellness through this blog by connecting Black Consciousness to self-discovery. Stay tuned so we can all receive our own birds-eye view!
Let's take it together.
I became the first in my immediate family to get accepted and go to college.
MY OWN BATTLE
After my freshman year of college, I fell into a deep depression that jumpstarted my intent of healing in solitude.
