Mental Health Resources for BIPOC



We understand and take seriously our ethical obligation as therapists to pursue social change with and on behalf of vulnerable and oppressed groups of people, and we actively work to increase our understanding of and dismantle the systems that contribute to oppression-based trauma. We believe that we would be remiss to call ourselves trauma-informed therapists without an acknowledgement and understanding of the systems that perpetuate trauma every day in Black, Indigenous and other People of Color.

We have created the following list of mental health resources for BIPOC including directories for finding a Therapist of Color, Directories for finding an LGBTQ Therapist of Color, Articles and Other Mental Health Resources for BIPOC, and Mental Health Podcasts hosted by Therapists of Color. Please e-mail us at info@findyourshinetherapy if you have suggested resources to add to this list.

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” – Audre Lorde
