Boris L Henson Foundation Live Video Production


Taraji P. Henson set up The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation with the goal to eradicate the stigma around mental health issues in the African-American community.

Earlier this year the foundation put together two day BLHF Conference for like-minded professionals and leaders to learn more about the latest research and work together to create strategies towards these issues.

The foundation was looking for a way to bring these messages to a wider audience beyond the conference attendees and engage them in a two-way conversation.
