MTV Entertainment Studios launches Hidden Healers, a mental health series that elevates BIPOC voices and communities

The digital series was created in partnership with the four young leaders who developed and presented the idea at MTVE's first-of-its-kind Mental Health Youth Action Forum hosted at the White House in May 2022 with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, Ambassador Susan Rice, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy and Selena Gomez. They include:

The first of these digital videos will be released in November as part of Native Peoples Heritage Month.  Other videos will be released throughout 2023 including during Black History Month (February), Women's History Month (March), Arab American Heritage Month (April), Asian American Pacific Islander Month (May), Caribbean American Heritage Month (June), and Latinx Heritage Month (September 15-October 15.)

"We spearheaded the Mental Health Youth Action Forum to empower young people and help them to develop mental health content that would resonate with their communities and drive people to action," said Brianna Cayo Cotter, SVP of Social Impact, Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios. "We are excited to be able to bring to life this unique and timely Hidden Healers initiative which further drives our shared mission to normalize and expand the conversation around mental health."

"Practicing mental wellness is not always easy for our young people, particularly those with intersectional and marginalized identities. This is due to many barriers to professional care like therapy, medication and accurate diagnoses, which are impacted by pervasive cultural stigmas that prevent people from taking action," said Dr. Alfiee Breland-Noble, founder of The AAKOMA Project and co-mentor to the Hidden Healers creators. "The Hidden Healers is a group of diverse innovators who bring awareness to attainable, affordable and inclusive methods of care, ultimately allowing everyone to envision themselves as people who can flourish."

As part of our commitment to convene brands and build movements toward meaningful change, many of the industry and nonprofit partners who joined the Mental Health Youth Action Forum are working with the young leaders to develop mental health content for their constituents and platforms. Some of these collaborations include:
