"Hidden Healers" is the name of the production, made in collaboration with MTV and Paramount Media that was originally presented at the White House during its first Youth Mental Health Action Forum in May.

The digital series was created with four young leaders who developed and presented the idea at this first forum along with the First Lady, Ambassador Susan Rice, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, and Selena Gomez. 

The young people are Mahmoud Khedr, an Egyptian immigrant, founder and CEO of FloraMind, a mental health innovation lab; Kheira Bekkadja, an Algerian-American of Muslim descent, whose involvement with Our Minds Matter has grounded her in creating safe spaces that destigmatize mental health and promote wellness; Maddox Guerilla, a New York social impact visionary who embodies the idea of protopia, the idea that every day we can work toward the world we want to see; and Ayanna Kelly, a veteran and Afro-Latina mother who is passionate about diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and accessibility in corporate culture and human resources.

"This is a series the world expects and needs," reads the release statement.

The videos in the digital series will be released gradually beginning in November, commemorating minorities and the months the country celebrates them, such as Black History Month, Women's History Month, and Hispanic Heritage Month.

"We are thrilled to be able to bring this unique and timely Hidden Healers initiative to life, which further advances our shared mission to normalize and expand the conversation around mental health," said Brianna Cayo Cotter, SVP of Social Impact, Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios.
