BLACK THERAPISTS FOR BLACK PEOPLE

ABSOLUTELY FREE

FREE BLACK THERAPY IS

A 501c3 Nonprofit Organization dedicated to providing remote mental health services with Black Mental Health professionals for Black and African American individuals. Absolutely FREE.

MISSION

Connecting Black therapists with Black and African American individuals who lack adequate funds or health insurance. Absolutely free.

VISION

A platform to uplift our Black community by giving the reparations our Black community deserves that our country has yet to accomplish.

Finding a therapist who shares racial identity is one of the most important factors in the therapist search. Black therapists can better relate and understand their culture, values, and experiences, especially those relating to systematic oppression, racism, and intergenerational trauma.

Black Americans are disproportionately affected by mental illness and poverty. Black and African American mental health professionals are disproportionately underrepresented as they account for just 5% of the psychology workforce. While the average cost for a therapy session can be over $125, Black therapists are also caught in a cycle of financial strain due to providing lower-cost services to Black people who often don't have the resources, but have a higher need, for mental health access- deeming black therapists for Black people highly inaccessible.

By supporting Free Black Therapy, you are supporting Black people in need of mental healthcare as well as Black therapists.
