Black Entrepreneurs and Community Empowered at Black History Month Empowerment Expo Hosted by Empower The Village at Bloomfield College

ETV’s well-attended midday program centered the growing mental health crisis enveloping the country. With a particular focus on the Black community, ETV enlisted the expertise of Dr. Cassandra Hutchins, a licensed psychologist in private practice at The Cass Center for Psychological and Holistic Wellbeing in Millburn, NJ, and creator of YourDocInTheBox Therapy Cards. The crowd was enthralled, as Dr. Hutchins shared useful coping techniques to help navigate the daily stresses and uncertainties of life. Dr. Hutchins found the experience gratifying as well, and enthusiastically recapped the day. “The event and the audience participation were amazing! I really enjoyed hearing such positive feedback from the Wellness workshop attendees. I was proud to have played a role in this important event programming!”
