REMIXING MENTAL HEALTH

Hip Hop & Youth


Since its inception, Hip Hop has empowered youth to achieve identity, belonging, and purpose. Today the challenges facing youth are looming. But a new generation of change leaders have taken the stage and are remixing the status quo.

Hip Hop Therapy (HHT) combines community-defined evidence-based practices with proven therapeutic techniques in an effort to help youth heal, grow and lead. This new framework for wellbeing has gained mainstreamed attention and has become a field of practice and study.

Global Institute


The Hip Hop Therapy Global Institute (HHTGI) is a social venture that aims to scale Hip Hop Therapy and accelerate the impact of its far-reaching community. Central to our design are three pillars; connect, amplify and broadcast. Through these pillars, we strive to build infrastructure, capacity and public support on behalf of our network. We develop useful tools that are free and readily accessible. We envision a world where every young person is at-promise and Hip Hop Therapy, and/or its core principles, are widely used as a tool for teaching youth to actively nurture wellbeing in their lives.
