Mental health matters and this collaboration is a significant step towards our goal of breaking down barriers and providing essential mental wellness care to over 25,000 Black women on HBCU campuses.

This program includes:

  • Free mental health virtual and in-person therapy sessions for individuals experiencing an exacerbation of stress, anxiety, and depression.

  • Self-regulatory practices including yoga, meditation, art, sound, and dance therapy – all provided by certified practitioners.
  • Workshops and seminars on a variety of requested topics. 
  • Rest pods for silence and respite, to reset from daily stressors.
