Pro-Black Mental Health Services
Studies indicate the psychological effects of racism include post-traumatic stress disorder and other forms of stress-related disorders. Due to race-based threats, Black families are reluctant to engage with services and avail of community resources mostly because many are part of a system that has been historically oppressive towards them.
We offer Pro-Black Mental Health Services (1-1 and group therapy) that:

Privilege Black people in social spaces.
Use an intersectional lens that considers the different ways Black people have been harmed and the many ways they have overcome social barriers.
Engage in culturally relevant and responsive ways.
Offer an understanding of the Black experience as relevant to the prevention and treatment of mental health; and to the enactment of positive mental health as social justice.
Actively address racism in all its forms against Black people and increase their capacity to successfully mitigate its impact.
