"There is a need for mental health professionals that look like us, helping us"

African American Mental Health Wellness

HUB Design Project

The design team is working with the community, family advocates, consumers and mental health professionals to identify the needs of the community dealing with mental health issues. Through this process we will design a Wellness HUB that honors the needs of the community that include the use of traditional practices and healing approaches that respect and builds upon the cultural values of the African American community.

Life’s Choices ...

This program is being designed to work with young adults (18 and older), entering the workforce and adults re-entering the workforce and/or changing career paths. The mission is to instill clarification and to encourage the participants to take ownership of their circumstances and current situations through structurally interlocking learning/development exercises that build on the application of cultural orientation and mutually reinforcing coaching techniques. Upon completion of this program, participants will have gained the ability to develop positive behaviors that will aid in the development of personal plans of self-sustainability and sufficiency. We offer vocational and character development training that will lead to gainful employment, in addition to educational resources for participants interested in continuing and/or furthering their academic career.
