As we continue to uplift Mental Health Awareness this month, we’re sharing a list of therapy and mental health resources made with Black women in mind. Finding a therapist and other resources can be challenging and even daunting, so we want to offer support and encouragement. No one in this life does it alone. Whether your concerns are affordability or finding a therapist or a program that understands your reality, we have options for you!
“To be seen, to be heard, to be understood… So often the stigma surrounding mental health issues and therapy prevents Black women from taking the step of seeing a therapist. This was developed to present mental health topics in a way that feels more accessible and relevant.” -Therapy for Black girls
Be sure to also check out their podcast, Therapy for Black Girls, led by Dr. Joy to experience the Therapy for Black Girls community and catch some gems that are dropped regularly.

There are numerous barriers to finding a great therapist: lack of quality assurance, outdated information, the uncertainty of personality fit, and phone tag. Zencare removes the guesswork to ensure you have a personalized, smooth, and comforting experience. All clinicians are vetted by our team so you receive the highest quality care.” –Zencare
