Mental Health Resources for Black Communities

From the National Alliance on Mental Illness webpage on Black/African American Mental Health –  “What happens at the intersection of mental health and one’s experience as a member of the Black community? While the experience of being Black in America varies tremendously, there are shared cultural factors that play a role in helping define mental health and supporting well-being, resiliency, and healing. Part of this shared cultural experience — family connections, values, expression through spirituality or music, reliance on community and religious networks — are enriching and can be great sources of strength and support. However, another part of this shared experience is facing racism, discrimination and inequity that can significantly affect a person’s mental health. Being treated or perceived as “less than” because of the color of your skin can be stressful and even traumatizing. Additionally, members of the Black community face structural challenges accessing the care and treatment they need.”

Curated by our Regional Coalition Lead Partner, Cobb Collaborative, we offer the following mental health resources for black communities – organizations for connections to therapy and support, social media resources, books to read and additional tools and educational resources.
