True to This (statement)

Press Release – June 3, 2020

Close your eyes and imagine a world where we can all show up whole, operate with joy, and live with power. Picture a space where there is no fear of harm from those charged to protect us. Envision a world where systemic racism, police brutality, and white supremacy are distant memories. Now, open your eyes. How are we going to co-create that future?

As recent moments confirm, our freedom and liberation are directly connected to our neighbors’. In that spirit, we honor the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others who have died in the hands of law enforcement. We stand in solidarity with Iyanna Dior, a Black Trans Woman who was brutally attacked, and Tony McDade, a Black transgender man who died in police custody.

To those who are experiencing trauma by witnessing the callous disregard of Black bodies; we see you. For those who protest with righteous anger for permission to exist in our skin and bodies without fear; we hear you. Like Dr. King, we understand the language of the unheard; we understand you.

We intentionally provide enhanced training to our therapists so they can support people during times like these. Our therapy services are designed specifically to provide a safe space for people from diverse backgrounds to engage in healing conversations that acknowledge systemic oppression and the impact it has on our wellbeing.

From our founding, we have been committed to dismantling structural racism and its effects on mental health and well-being. We remain true to this work. Our first community was designed by and for Black men because we have long understood the emotional weight that Black men carry every day. We have pleaded for them without faltering because we know that their stress of just being is a silent killer. We refuse to accept this as normal and have committed ourselves to this cause.

We are here to help,

The Henry Health Team

We exist to ensure people can show up whole, operate with joy, and live with power.
