About the Event

About this Event Inspired by Maya Angelo’s quote, "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style", InnoPsych, Inc., presents Thriving Thursdays, a live chat with mental health and wellness professionals whose groundbreaking work is bringing hope, healing, and health to communities of color! Live Chat with Dr. Lavanya Devdas and Kwame Dance, MA Moderator: Dr. Charmain F. Jackman, Founder, InnoPsych

Dr. Lavanya Devdas is a licensed psychologist in PA and NY and has a private practice in Doylestown, PA, for mental health therapy for adults. Using an integrative approach, she treats anxiety, depression and relational challenges within the context and lived experiences of the individual and their respective familial and social environments. She is also an advocate for addressing mental health needs and coping at the group and communal levels, including communities of color.

Kwame Dance is a mental health professional & advocate; Behavioral Health Clinician at Whittier Street Health Center; Behavioral Health Services Coordinator at Cambridge Community Center; Founder of the Advancement of Culturally Competent Education to Stop Stigma (ACCESS) mental health career early exposure program; and a clinical psychology doctoral candidate at William James College.
