Mental Health Awareness Month

Depression. Anxiety. Trauma. Stress. I know you’re tired. You’re fed up. You’re so close to breaking…

You are not alone. Each year millions of Black Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. May is Mental Health Awareness month and now more than ever we need to find appropriate support, understanding… strategies to help find the comfort and confidence… the wellness we all deserve.

Historical dehumanization, oppression, and violence against Black Americans has evolved into present day racism. Which in turn cultivates a mistrust and more impoverished experience amongst the black community leading to inadequate access to mental health care. When this is coupled with shame and weakness that is unfairly attached to mental illness we are left feeling uncertain, isolated. The stigma is real.

Hope for recovery is real too. We are living in a time of mass traumas – COVID-19 and isolation, grief from financial and human losses, police brutality, racial violence, political rhetoric, fear. You cannot be expected to face trauma alone. New Perspectives Therapeutic Services offers licensed clinical therapy specializing in:

  • Anxiety
  • Confidence

  • Grief/Loss
  • Life stress and transitions

  • Self-Esteem
  • Stress Management

Learn strategies to cope, change your thought pattern, build confidence and acceptance. Realize your potential.

And begin to heal. Your mental health is equally as important as your physical health.
