Our mental health and well-being are some of the most important parts of taking care of ourselves. Oftentimes we neglect our mental health because of other priorities, however, our well-being should always be a priority. The ongoing pandemic continues to cause us stress because of several contributing factors like work, school, and the political climate. If you have considered seeking therapy, we encourage you to. Therapy can be a great way for you to talk about your feelings without feeling judged. As first-generation BIPOC, it is even harder to find a therapist with whom we can relate or feel comfortable. Below are some sites where you can find Black and brown therapists.
