Hackathon for Depression

hackathon

Hackathon to create awareness for Depression in Immigrant and Refugee communities. Hosted by 1951 Coffee, and Thon X

It was an amazing twelve hour workspace. Where folks from multiple disciplines came together to work on tackling a cause- increasing awareness around Depression in Immigrant and Refugee communities. There were so many great ideas and lots of passion in the room.

Before the participants got to work, they volunteered to engage in a demonstration of the RICHER model. The participants volunteered to share some work that reflect how they felt. This is the pre and post reflection of how they felt in their mind, body and spirit.

Below is a word bible that summarized the expression of the participants pre and post the session

Global Youth Service Day

Healthy Belly

 From children making coconut oil sugar scrubs, to juicing Ayurvedic style.

From visual sugar content in drinks to children under ten cooking for the public with their mother.

Haile Thomas and the HAPPY organization along with the Tucson YWCA went through a great deal to feed the community with healthy delicious meals.

 

What an amazing experience it is to be in the Tucson community.

I was honored to be a part of an amazing family that inspires me. The thomas family have together supported Haile in her ventures following her dreams.

Photos to come soon.

I was asked to be a speaker and of course I spoke about music and movement and  self-healing practices.
