6LACK Pays Therapy Bills For Black Youth As Part Of Mental Health Campaign “ Let Love Lead,Essence Of Humanity”

 



Ricardo Valdez Valentine Jr. professionally known as 6LACK went humanitarian to settle hospital bills for mentally affected kids.


As part of the initiative  he donated six months worth of therapy session to kids in MHALA’s TRANSITION AGE YOUTH PROGRAM,which assist young homeless kids off the street.


According to Billboard, 6LACK is also advocating for fundamental change within the entertainment industry and hopes his shared experiences will inspire his music peers to take care of their mental health.


“I’ve always done check-ins with myself to see how I feel about myself, life, and the things around me,” 6LACK told Billboard. 


“I will say it wasn’t until recent, that I actually learned the importance of getting to the source of the things that don’t make me feel great.


“I want to share my experiences and talk about the resources/things that helped me, in order to spark people to do the same for themselves. Sometimes support is all you need to take the first step, so I want my first step to encourage someone else’s first step.”
