Kofi Siriboe drops new doc called 'WTF is mental Health

Mental Health is such an important topic & 'Queen Sugar' Actor Kofi Siriboe is bringing it to the forefront in a new short film called 'What the f*** is mental health. 

For POC overall there has historically been a stigma around mental health & being honest with folks about our personal testimonies with it. Having the conversation is however very important & the doc is a good way to start if you've ever been curious about mental health. 

Siriboe told the Huffington post: 

“Making ‘WTF Is Mental Health?’ has been a part of a healing process for me, one I’m still exploring,” Siriboe added. “It’s the companion piece to ‘Jump,’ a short film I made after a mentor and big brother figure died by suicide, just before I got the call that I’d been cast in ‘Queen Sugar.’ I started working on this beautiful, emotional show and felt how liberating it was to channel my fears into art. As I began to mold ‘Jump,’ I realized the true conversation I was craving centered on young black people who are figuring out this mental health thing, too.”

The documentary is shot beautifully, check it out below & see the stories of the young people featured...
