I was able to experience the amazing story of Leon at a gathering for Breakout at Convene in New York. This man is a leader for so many different reasons, his ability to triumph over his own personal loss and become a beacon to his community, for the fearless way he leads with his heart. But more, Leon was able to make a decision that put his mental health first and foremost of how he executes his purpose.

That kind of bravery needs to be celebrated, it needs to be documented and witnessed.

LEON the film centers around Leon Ford’s lifetime mental health journey growing up in Pittsburgh. From his run for city council in 2019, the police brutality he suffered in 2012, to the power of therapy.

Take a look at the teaser below and I’ll update you when it premiers on Facebook!

A Breakout Film in association with BMe Community

I was able to sync up with Leon and ask him if there was one thing that he wanted people to take away from this film what would it be ?

I want People o understan that it is okay to choose to put yourself first. We all deserve healthy minds, hearts, and souls.
