Elyse Fox founded Sad Girls Club in February 2017, after the release of her documentary film, “Conversations with Friends,” which detailed her life with depression. Today, Sad Girls Club has become a collective of young womxn, girls, and femmes of color from all over the world who support one another through their mental health struggles. The club has an online platform and also hosts IRL workshops and has become a place for people to find community, care, and mentorship.

This year, in honor of July’s BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month, SGC partnered with Instagram for a photo series that brought together some of its members who have managed to carve out a space for their mental health through the arts, politics, journalism, and social media — and who encourage others to find their own positive outlets of expression. POPSUGAR had the honor of interviewing some of these advocates, activists, and creators — from Deja Foxx to Brittney Winbush — and trust us, the advice is *chef’s kiss*. Welcome the Sad Girls Club.
