G Herbo‘s mental health advocacy continues with his latest project, Swervin’ Through Stress — a new nonprofit organization that aims to raise awareness about mental health, reduce the stigma around mental health issues, and provide help and information that can help prevent self-harm.

The org will specifically carry on this mission as it teams up with Social Works for the Black Joy Ride Event on May 20. The event will feature a Black joy ride, local wellness brand pop-ups and yoga sessions. The following day will be dedicated to serving women affected by gun violence: Swervin’ Through Stress and the Free Root Operation’s Bloom Program will offer the ladies time at a local spa, a breath work workshop and the opportunity to partake in sensory wellness activities.

“Our community doesn’t talk about mental health enough,” Herbo tells Billboard of his latest project. “With Swervin’ Through Stress, I really wanted to create a space where it’s OK for us to talk about what we’re going through. A lot of us can relate to each other’s struggles.”
