From M.E. to You: A Mental Health Concert
Bringing Hope, Healing, and Harmony through Music
Hyattsville, MD, July 28, 2023 - We are thrilled to announce the upcoming event "From M.E. to You: A Mental Health Concert," a one-of-a-kind musical experience dedicated to raising awareness about mental health issues and fostering a sense of community and support. The concert, featuring inspirational-soul artist, Maya Elizabeth, will take place on July 28 at Creative Saints Loft, Hyattsville, MD.
Organized by Maya Elizabeth and Kimberly Renay Mayes, LCSW, founder of Essence Therapy & Wellness Center, "From M.E. to You" aims to break the stigma surrounding mental health and promote open conversations that encourage understanding, compassion, and healing. By leveraging the universal language of music, the concert intends to create a safe space for individuals to be entertained, informed and empowered through a night of uplifting melodies and powerful lyrics--music that soothes, inspires and refreshes.
The concert will also feature professional insights from Kimberly's mental health expertise. Plus, attendees can engage vendors and community representatives from advocacy organizations, who will provide valuable resources, information and wellness products. Additionally, the event will highlight Community Advocates4You--a Baltimore-based organization that supports families and children with disabilities.
"I wrote in my journal over 10 years ago that I wanted to start a mental health concert series to promote mental & emotional well-being AND to vibe to beautiful music," said Kimberly, LCSW. "I named it From Me to You, a gift of peace & direction... I tucked it away for the perfect time... Then, [a few months ago] here comes Maya Elizabeth (M.E. 🤯) telling me she’s been wanting to do the SAME THING!"
"We're partnering to create a safe space where folks can enjoy an unforgettable evening of music, community, and hope." says Maya. "I'm all about multi-sensory listening experiences, too. So, we have special plans 'brewing' with our vendors to involve not just healing sound, but also taste and aromatherapy."
