Mental health is a critical issue in the community. Without it, people cannot function properly.
On Friday, September 28 at the Auburn Research Library in Atlanta, Georgia, Lostkite Productions held a discussion and premiered their film, "Joy", centered around mental health and healing. The Black Rose Foundation for Children was the presenting sponsor for the event.
On behalf of Purposely Awakened, Antonio Shalom, attended the premiere which he reported was very much needed in the community and was well attended with Atlanta professionals and community members.
