CONNECTING YOU WITH THE HELP YOU NEED
Mental Health Fund
Mental Health Matters
The stress of anti-Black racism and the added burden of COVID-19 is an enormous weight on the shoulders of Black parents and children.
Black adults are 20% more likely to experience mental health concerns. Black youth are more than twice as likely to die by suicide than their white peers.
Even worse, many families do not have access to private insurance, meaning the support they require is out of reach. We want to help.
The Parents of Black Children Mental Health Fund partners with mental health clinicians to make sure that families can get the support they need.
This fund is available to support both parents who identify as Black as well as children/youth who identify as Black.
If you need mental health support and don’t have coverage, or know someone in need, contact us for support.
APPLY FOR THE MENTAL HEALTH FUND
We are able to provide support to a number of individuals. In order to apply, you must identify as a Black person or be applying for a child who identifies as Black.
