Wellness for Immigrant Daughters Event
Now Screening Online
In partnership with Home Girls Unite, we will explore and imagine how wellness and well-being could be in immigrant homes, where it is often taboo to discuss mental health issues. We will explore themes presented in Nana Mensah's directorial debut Queen of Glory, a story that about a brilliant child of Ghanaian immigrants, who quits her Ivy League PhD program to follow her married lover to Ohio. When her mother dies suddenly, she bequeaths her daughter a Christian bookstore in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx, where Sarah was raised.
Many immigrant daughters often don't feel able to express their wellness and mental health needs to family or medical professionals. This session will be an opportunity to help us navigate our way through having these conversations and normalise the topic of mental health.

About Home Girls
Home Girls is an online and offline support group and safe space for first daughters of immigrants to discuss the real experiences of childhood in marginalised communities. It works to help people connect with their multiple identities in a complex world – the worlds of their parents, their peers, and the world's young women envisage for themselves. They run monthly events and a weekly podcast that tackles a range of topics including anxiety and setting boundaries.
