Funding & Resources for All Inclusive Mental Health & Wellness Services that Cater Specifically to the Black Community.
What is a spotlight?
With my releases I want to bring awareness to important topics, as well as GoFundMe campaigns having to do with these topics that haven't reached their goals.
By spotlighting these causes I hope that my listeners get involved and we can all, including myself, learn more about these topics and get funding campaigns closer to their goals.
It is important that we get our lives more involved in ways we can listen, contribute and improve our communities on both big and small scales.
With this Spotlight, we focus on: Funds that haven't reached goals & Resources for All Inclusive Mental Health & Wellness Services that Cater Specifically to the Black Community.
Spotlight Fund that hasn't reached it's goal:

Resources for All Inclusive Mental Health Services Catering Specifically to the Black Community.
Donate what you can or share, thank you!
I chose this cause because of Nicole Lewis, creator of the GoFundMe Campaign.
She has vocalized her want to make big change in her community in Mississippi and in others. She's been offering free mental health services to those who've expressed their struggle finding affordable and quality options.
I was inspired by her big scale dreams to help those in need of these services.
Nezza & I love this campaign specifically because it is all inclusive and run by this inspiring woman who seems to truly want to make a difference.
We know the importance of mental health care and love the idea that the funds would go to professionals in different areas who have patients needing assistance.
Those in need of these services can also reach out to her for help through the GoFundMe.
This Fund was shared by someone I admire to bring awareness to campaigns that deal with this topic. Access to Mental Health Services and the means to take advantage of them is extremely important. Access to these services is statistically more difficult for black people for many systemically influenced reasons.
There are many funds that take notice of this inequality and work to make these services more accessible to anyone in need of them. I cannot begin to imagine the trauma that living in America must bring to the mental health of those in the black community due to experiencing big and small scale effects of systemic racism year after year.
We are currently hearing stories of those who's lives and livelihoods have been affected by Covid. We see stories of our friends, loved ones and influences having their mental health affected by blatant examples of racism constantly going viral. While it is extremely important to expose the horrifying issues that need immediate fixing, it is only understandable that there is a mental turmoil with being exposed to it day in and day out with no solutions.
We would like to bring awareness to this topic and add to the normalization of mental health care and access to culturally competent, quality therapy and treatment for all races, sexual orientations, ages, religions and backgrounds and to erase the stigma around asking for help. There are endless Topics, Funds and Causes that need attention and awareness.
I would like to use the platform I have to amplify the voices of others and by doing so, educated myself and those who come to listen.
Change starts with us and our willingness to evolve and use our personal evolutions to change our families, our communities and the world. Thank you for your help!
