Mental Health Resources For People Of Color

It is a confusing time right now for the Black community as President Trumps Federal response, as well as state, and local governments, having a mixed bag of results when faced with the BLM movement.

Between that, a disproportionate amount of people of color dying from the coronavirus and worried about being hurt or killed simply for being Black in public, mental health at this time for people of color is especially critical.

Therapy for Black Girls website has a search function to help Black women find an in-person or virtual therapist.

Inclusive Therapists site is a resource for people looking for inclusive therapists, they “center the needs of marginalized populations” which includes Black, Indigenous and People of Color, the LGBTQ+ community, and people with disabilities.

The AAKOMA Project has many initiatives, including free therapy for young Black people and teens in Northern Virginia.

Black Mental Wellness, their mission is to “provide resources about mental health and behavioral health topics from a Black perspective, to highlight and increase the diversity of mental health professionals, and to decrease the mental health stigma in the Black community”.
