Little About Us

Reflection of the Green Leaf is the brainchild of Daffaney Jenkins Webster, in collaboration with NAMI Louisiana and Janice Bonner-Davis. Made up of an organized team of advocacies, the mission is to develop resources, and enrichment opportunities for those that are mentally ill. 

 

Reflection of the Green Leaf tells the story of a vision of life, despair, sorrow, desires, and hopefulness, encapsulated in the divided hemispheres of one that poses two words…. Mentally Ill.

GREEN I am serene, flawless, peaceful, unwavering, eternal.
LEAF as the veins of my nature tell every being of me, vulnerable but stubborn, strong but weak, uncensored but mild, calm but bold, passive but relentless, passionate but wicked, loving but afraid, intelligent but stigmatized.
