Resources for Black Mental Health Professionals
As a Black mental health professional I've often felt alone in this space. This is why I added this resource page for Black mental health professionals. This is a space where you can come network and find resources to aid you in the work you do. Please email me at [email protected] if you have information about resources, upcoming trainings, symposiums, conferences, etc. that would be beneficial and of interest to Black mental health professionals. I am interested in starting a Black therapist consultation group. This group would be virtual and open to licensed Black mental health professionals throughout the US. Email me if you're interested. You can also email any suggestions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you find this page to be a valuable resource.
