Students, take note!

Our speaker Christopher LeMark is the Founder & CEO of Coffee, Hip-Hop & Mental Health (CHHAMH). By taking the brave decision to start therapy, he was able to dispel the myth that the suffering he endured and the hand he was given were entirely his own responsibility.

He has established a secure environment for everyone who enters the coffee shop by establishing a connection with his community.

He helped those who were facing emotional, financial, and social obstacles by creating a safe haven in the cafeteria.
