Free Black Therapy

Black Americans are disproportionately affected by mental illness andpoverty. Black and African American mental health professionals are disproportionately underrepresented as they account for just5% of the psychology workforce. While the average cost for a therapy session can be over $125, Black therapists are also caught in a cycle of financial strain due to providing lower-cost services to Black people who often don't have the resources, but have a higher need, for mental health access- deeming black therapists for Black people highly inaccessible.

Free Black Therapy is a 501c3 Nonprofit Organization dedicated to providing remote mental health services with Black Mental Health professionals for Black and African American individuals. Absolutely FREE.
