Mental Health Support

Connecting You with the Help You Need

The stress of anti-Black racism, plus the added burden of COVID-19 has become an enormous weight on the shoulders of Black parents and children. 

Research has found that Black adults are 20% more likely to experience mental health concerns, and Black youth are more than twice as likely to die by suicide than their white peers. To make matters worse, many families do not have access to private insurance, meaning the support they require is out of reach and 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. 

Thank You to Our Donors:

Who is considered a person of African descent?

The term ‘People of African descent’ refers to all Black people who can trace their family tree back to the continent of Africa. It does not matter if you are descendent from victims of the transatlantic slave trade (example people from the Caribbean, Latin America, South America, African American, African Canadian) or if you are a more recent migrant from the continent of Africa (example: Somalia, Nigeria, Ghana etc.).

The term “African Canadian” refers to all Canadians of African descent, regardless of where they were born, e.g. Canada, Jamaica, Nigeria, England, etc.
