Love Thyself First (LTF) is a WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT initiative that focuses on Self-Love and Mental Health Advocacy. LTF’s mission is to encourage women to step out in faith and live in purpose through mindfulness despite cultural barriers associated with mental health in urban communities. LTF strives to empower, with the goal to reduce the number of women and youth who are systematically forced into disempowering circumstances, which include physical and sexual abuse, drug abuse, homelessness and incarceration.
Through workshop-based support groups to educate women about the importance of self-advocacy, LTF creates spaces to empower women to become economically, spiritually and mentally fulfilled. Since 2015, the LTF platform has been carefully executed by creating unique artistic opportunities for conversations and experiences on topics such as self-love, mental wellness, hope and faith.

WHY IS THIS PROGRAM IMPORTANT?
LTF is imperative because it provides productive comfortable spaces that use the arts to edify women in areas of self-love, confidence, purposeful living, and self identification. All of which help to promote healthy living, which in turn will reduce the number of women who fall victim to destructive circumstances which most times leads to a diminished sense of self worth, incarceration, and sometimes suicide.
