It’s time to face a hard truth.
Mental healthcare was not designed for everyone.
For every 20 therapists in America, only one is black.
But Black adults are 20% more likely to struggle with mental health issues.
And in times like these, that imbalance can have dangerous consequences.
Trainings that forget about cultural context.
Clinical research that learns only from the trauma of middle class white families.
Stereotypes and missteps by therapists who don’t understand the emotional burden of systemic racism.
Hurdle is mental healthcare for invisible barriers.
We’re a safe space for people who don’t feel safe in traditional institutions.
A place that does not marginalize anyone’s identity.
A place that honors culture instead of ignoring it.
A place where people can speak their truth and be believed.
More coming soon.
