The mission of Healing in the Margins is to cultivate systemic change and foster healing by providing resources and programming in mental health spaces for the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC.
We know that folks from marginalized communities have an increased need for mental health care. We know that BIPOC folks have been hesitant to seek care due to cultural norms and a lack of trust in mental health care. We know that being in the South, LGBTQIA+ folks often do not feel safe to seek care. Therefore we know that folks from marginalized communities have have been underserved and under supported in mental health spaces. We want to create systemic change in Mental Health for individuals in marginalized communities by supporting both mental health clinicians and the clients they serve.
