Plot Synopsis

Premiering during Minority Mental Health Awareness Month (July), BET HER PRESENTS: THE COUCH features two short films that follow the individual journeys of two women and their bout with mental health. Each story touches on an aspect of mental health and what it looks like as a stigma in the Black Community, in an attempt to debunk myths and misconceptions. All #MinorityMentalHealth stories are written, directed, and produced by Black women. The two films are:

"Baby Blue" (9pm): After giving birth to her son, a first-time mom spirals from mild post-partum depression into severe postpartum psychosis. While she gets support with the baby, we see the heart-wrenching consequences of her not getting support for her mental well-being. Directed by Kim Fields, written by Nakia Stephens, and produced by Tressa 'Azarel' Smallwood. Starring Shaquita Smith and Traci Braxton.

"Everything Is Fine" (9:30pm): An affluent Black family seem to have it all, but they face a challenge with their estranged son who struggles to hold onto reality with the confidential help of his younger sister. Written by Dez White, directed by Victoria Lynn Rowell, and produced by Tressa 'Azarel' Smallwood. Starring Charmin Lee, Malachi Malik, and Vernon Davis.
