Marjani Forte-Saunders’ being Here is a movement observation of mental health in the face of systemic oppression. This work re-examines mental illness and addiction and considers the broader story of survival, resilience, and healing, asking “how does each story reflect a larger picture? And how do we tell these stories, affirming health and recovery?”

What does it mean to be Immediately, Necessarily, Unequivocally Here….
