TherapyForBlackMen.org will soon be supporting free therapy sessions for Black Men using donations we have received from some very kind folks who are supporting our movement! This support will be offered exclusively to Black Men who are unemployed and who do not have insurance or Medicaid/Medicare.
We have not worked out all the details yet so please don’t contact our therapist to ask about this. Instead, if you are interested, please give us your name and email address and we will keep you updated on our progress with this initiative. We will not use your contact information for any other purpose.
The services of Therapists listed on this website are not free. Please DO NOT ask them for free services!
