The Wellness Movement: Take A Walk In My Shoes

Since the start of the pandemic, the mental health of individuals has been impacted by a variety of circumstances. For example the loss of loved ones, loss of employment, working from home, minimal socialization opportunities, or being promoted by local school officials to become homeschool teachers.

Individuals who have never experienced depression, anxiety, or grief have been triggered and are unable to identify and relate to symptoms. We have also seen an increase in crisis for those who have preexisting mental health diagnoses. 

In order to see change and heal our community, we must offer education and support swiftly and efficiently. As a result, the services provided through our movement are extremely urgent and necessary for our community.

The "Take A Walk In My Shoes", wellness movement is dedicated to providing an abundance of efforts in debunking myths surrounding therapy through support, education, and resources to individuals seeking to enhance their mental health awareness

Our goal is a simple but powerful one, to support socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals and families in North Carolina, who would benefit from therapeutic services and educational resources addressing mental health.

This movement is being led by Pursuing Peace, PLLC based out of Charlotte, NC. 

Who Will Benefit: Any North Carolina residents. Pursuing Peace, PLLC will assist individuals within Charlotte and surrounding areas in person or via telehealth for all other North Carolina residents.

Donation Period: 30 Days

When: Therapeutic and Educational Services  will start June 2021

Benefits of Movement: With donations, individuals will receive a minimum of three 45 minute Psychoeducation sessions and three 30 minute Check-In sessions (valued at $800).

Explain the process to me. What do I donate? It’s simple, you donate the dollar amount of your shoe size. Ex: If you wear a size 8 you donate $8. However, you are welcome to donate as much as you'd like!

Please provide us with your email address so we can send you a personal note as a token of our appreciation!

For many years mental health has not been addressed in poor and disenfranchised communities. The lack of acknowledgment for mental health services in our community has resulted in generational cycles of unresolved issues. The Owner of Pursuing Peace, PLLC has the vision to give back to the community to provide mental health services to those who are in need. 

Saving lives one shoe size at a time. These funds will provide Pursuing Peace, PLLC the opportunity to provide services to the community. 

If you are unable to make a donation, no worries simply click the share button to spread the word!
