YG is giving underprivileged communities access to mental health resources.
YG's TeleHealth vans teamed up with to Todd Gurly and Dion Rambo and the City of Hawthorne, to celebrate the addition of three 5G-enabled vans -- which “physically transport internet-connected telecommunications, teleconferencing, and video-conferencing devices and services/computer applications” to underserved areas.
"TeleHealth Van is a service that we created for the people in the inner-cities. It works like—you basically don’t leave your house if you got a mental health situation or got doctors you need to talk to. The van comes to your location and you get in the van—it’s basically like doing a Zoom call. You get in the van and you see your mental health worker or [doctor] over the screen, and y’all have y’all session.”
TeleHealth allows virtual meetups between physicians and those in the need, as they work with health departments, clinics, adult centers, and foster care providers to provide low-income communities with services.
“They was talkin’ to me about mental health and how a lot of our people... we like mental health victims. They start tellin’ me different forms of mental health... So, I’m like damn, ‘I’m a victim to this shit! I ain’t really know what the shit really was until they started breaking it down.” YG said.
