Funded Program

Building Organizational Capacity: Black Space is a community organization that provides free group therapeutic experiences for Black and Brown communities. To destigmatize mental wellness, Black Space has come together to create beautiful and safe spaces, designated for healing communities that have been burdened by economic suppression, racial disparities, limited access to quality health care, and a lack of culturally competent mental health providers. They look to aggressively recruit individuals that are licensed therapists. Looking ahead they will ingratiate therapists as co-facilitators alongside their lead psychiatrist. This will allow co facilitators to progress into the lead position for each group (men, women, LGBTQIA+). Multi-year funding will allow Black Space to focus on programmatic efforts, marketing, and training. (Racial Equity Fund)
