      April 4th,2019 -Drawing on her background as a videographer and transcriber for the Bronx African American History Project (BAAHP), Puppy Water Radio podcast host and Los Angeles based Behavioral Therapist and Social Worker, Princess Okieme uses Hip Hop and other forms of popular culture to spread her compassionate perspective on mental health and mental illness through her podcast Puppy Water Radio, now airing on Mental Health News Radio Network.

Aiming straight for the heart of a general public ill-informed about the realities of mental illness Puppy Water Radio reroutes popular movies, TV and videos into teaching tools; the podcast features fun yet intimate, mainly in-person, discussions with actors, athletes, mental health professionals, producers and other entertainment world personalities. Podcast episodes center on guests sharing their personal mental health struggles. Part art therapy session and part social analysis each episode examines how social factors such as legislation and public accommodation intersect with and affect those suffering from mental, behavioral and neurological disorders. The emphasis is on a cool, relate-able format that tackles serious issues.

Okieme said, “I have observed in pop culture and society as a whole that people are aimlessly and unknowingly suffering from mental illness, like I once did, and that those within pop culture -especially the youth – find it taboo to talk about mental health. This applies, too, to the Millennial demographic, which according to the U.S. Census represents more than one quarter of the nation’s population; if this demographic of people find it strange to talk about mental illness then that means there are a large number of people suffering”.

In addition to Puppy Water Radio – the name comes from a comment the show’s host heard one boy shouting at another in the Bronx neighborhood where she grew up – Princess Okieme is the founder of Puppy Water Entertainment, which opened its doors in 2017. Coming soon for Puppy Water are its first Fundraiser Party at The Barkada Restaurant in Hollywood on April the 20th, a TV series on Autism and a Mental Health Arts festival on August the 31st (currently both in pre-development). Also in the works are a non-profit called The Puppy Water Entertainment Foundation, which will provide a mental health clinic, research opportunities and grants to film makers interested in mental health related content.

Puppy Water Radio airs weekly on Mental Health News Radio Network. It will soon be available on KQBH 101.5 FM Community Radio.

Crowdster Announces a New Partnership with a LA-based Entertainment firm, Puppy Water Entertainment, in support of the Girl Rising global movement.

    Brookville, New York (PRWEB) March 24, 2017 -- Last month, development staff at Puppy Water Entertainment approached Crowdster about a project they had in mind (and the pieces of that puzzle they had yet to secure). Nurturing a growing relationship with the global women’s empowerment movement, Girl Rising, Puppy Water Entertainment needed event management and event marketing support to plan screenings of the movement’s central piece of media, the documentary picture “Girl Rising.” It took nothing more than the chance to exchange services with another enterprise and support a global movement to shatter gender gaps in education and work opportunities to win over Crowdster’s attention and commitment.

     Directed by Academy Award-Nominated Director Richard E. Robbins, “Girl Rising” presents an answer to the myriad obstacles women and girls face across the world in areas of equal opportunity and access to education film journeys around the globe to witness the resilience and strength of the human spirit as well as the power of education to change the world. The movement demands real, global change to “create visibility for girls, spread the word, gain knowledge, and give the movement for girls' education personal meaning.” Crowdster CEO Joe Ferraro shares, "As a father to six daughters and a missionary who supports orphans - both girls and boys - the mission of Girl Rising is critically important to me. Education is the key to breaking cycles of poverty and enabling individuals to become happy, productive, and contributing members of society."

     Puppy Water Entertainment's owner Princess Okieme is thankful for the chance to offer Crowdster some public relations support in exchange for Crowdster's marketing expertise, explaining that "every strategy requires collaboration between partnerships." The movement’s website asks anyone who supports the rights of millions of young women and girls denied access to education due to cyclical, extreme poverty and pervasive sexism to “share the film with your daughters and sons, neighbors and colleagues.” That is precisely what Crowdster plans to do. Plans are underway to host a screening of “Girl Rising” on Long Island University's Post campus – which also houses Crowdster’s headquarters – in May, along with a parallel campaign to raise money for the movement from the greater Long Island community.

    Why does the public’s support count? Every purchase of the film, rights to publicly screen it, and a portion of tickets to attend directly fuel Girl Rising’s movement and programs around the world! Stay on the lookout for details about future screenings produced by Crowdster and Puppy Water Entertainment. Interested in hosting a"Girl Rising" screening? The Girl Rising website has a page for that!
