Adwoa Aboah Sheds Light on Mental Health in New Short Film

Filled with tips for coping with depression.

In collaboration with Dazed, model and mental health activist Adwoa Aboah‘s platform Gurls Talk releases a short film on mental health. In the video Aboah speaks candidly about her battles with mental health alongside models Holly Gore, Hanne Gaby Odiele and her sister, model Kesewa Aboah. Both Odiele and Adwoa lounge on couches as they share how they cope with feeling down: boxing, going out to brunch and needing to have their own moments of alone time.

Adwoa even shares details on being a complete mess while she once battled with with addiction. “Routine is key,” is how Adwoa describes moving towards a life of positivity without using. Gurls Talk was founded by Adwoa as an empowerment-based digital platform created to provide a safe space for women to discuss mental health, sex and more.

Check out the models sharing details on moving past depression in the video above.
