Black society + mental illness = negative stigma
 This stigma makes the discussion about mental illness more difficult in an African American household.

Mental health is a sensitive subject in the black community, making it not talked about. With the use of references from creative archives. And the research of mental health in the black community. I created a partnership with the Black Mental Health Alliance. Becoming the platform for the "I'm Not Fine" project to start the conversation about mental health in the black community.

Logo Process

The INF  abbreviates I'm not fine. 
The colors are pulled from the Black Mental Health Alliance as they are the platform giver for the project.
The letter N and the tittle of the i, are  purposely different colored: to represent feeling separated and excluded, but also to represent the thought of mental health by said person.
