Established in 2021, the Black Mental Health Program is bringing together Africa and the African Diaspora for better mental health. We do this through Black Healing & Learning Circles, Mental Health Career Hours and the Black Mental Health Fellowship program.
Several fellowships exist throughout the global mental health space, but there isn't much dedicated to serving the African diaspora. Because of this, we're facilitating co-designed fellowships for young people from the diaspora who are passionate about mental health and doing things differently. Fellowships under this program are highly individualized, multi-impact experiences - no two fellowships are the same.
That's so exciting! It makes our day when someone wants to join the mental health field. Being a Black mental health professional comes with unique challenges, so if you have any questions, are looking for information or want to bounce ideas around, our Program Director is available to connect through Mental Health Career Hours.
