BMHC is now launching our free Online Peer Support Group program for LGBTQ Black youth aged 18 – 30. The pilot will be a closed group of 10 members, and will run for 12 weeks from March – June 2021.
In a support group, people are able to talk with others who are like themselves – people who truly empathize with what they are going through and can share the type of practical insights that can only come from firsthand experiences. With this program, BMHC aims to break the stigma and shame associated with mental health and create an anti-oppressive harm-reductive space for cathartic release, community building, and skill sharing. Peer support participants will actively participate in creating an inclusive safer environment for each other from registration to the very last session.
Registration is currently closed. We will have two groups opening in the summer. Please check back in June 2021.
