As a follow-up to my previous blog, I want to share resources that can help you with your depression or mental health issues, if you are ready to take the step to get professional help. It can be a hard step to ask for help so I want to share resources that people of color would feel the most comfortable with, not just any resources. Everyone has a preference and most of the time, people of color prefer resources that specifically speak to their cultural and ethnic backgrounds not just cookie cutter resources for everyone. Just like shoes, therapy is not one size fits all. It has to be customized to the specific person based on gender, race, age, religious or spiritual practice, theoretical discipline, etc.
So here are the resources I found for people of color that could assist you in your journey:
I hope that if you are suffering with mental health issues that you contact one of these resources for assistance. No one should have to suffer in silence without knowing where to go for help. If you would like to include any resources not listed, please drop in comments below.
Love and light,
