The SELF CARE ≠ SELFISH workshop will cover an interactive discussion and art activity led by a licensed psychologist & visual artist, Dr. Danessa Mayo.

In order to succeed and thrive in our daily lives, we have to prioritize our health and wellness. This event will be focused on getting to know yourself and exploring the struggles of everyday adulthood in our contemporary society.

The discussion will be followed by a painting party! Think of it as a creative way to begin to build your sense of self.

And don't worry - this activity is for all levels of art experiences! Nothing to prepare for, nothing else to bring but an open mind and your awesome self! :)
