Project Description

Since 2017 Sad Girls Club has been healing young black women globally by creating community, providing access to resources and shifting the narrative around mental wellness. We're that sweet spot of unbiased support between your friends and family. Your mental health is is our priority and have supported 10's of thousands through in person and digital events, free programing and curating culturally inviting safe spaces for the black and BIPOC population. Our next priority is to provide 1:1 therapy therapy to those who can't afford it but who need it the most. People of color aren't getting the right treatment because they aren't trauma informed.

Eight of 10 people in the Cost of Therapy Survey organized by Very Well Mind felt that therapy was a good investment. But even those whose care was covered in part by insurance reported concerns about continuing to afford it. Christine M. Crawford, M.D., MPH, Assistant Medical Director at NAMI says that being able to connect with a mental health professional who can embody the experiences of women of color can be really vital to getting help. But women of color have very few options when choosing a mental health provider of color. In fact, according to a data-point study published in 2020 by the American Psychological Association (APA), less than 5 percent of mental-health providers were Black. Asian providers made up about 4 percent, as did Hispanic providers. As the APA points out, the racial breakdown of providers does not reflect the makeup of the U.S., which poses a problem.

Sad Girls Club will be a catalyst for the 80 million+ BIPOC women and men who can't afford talk therapy.

Remedy will grant quarterly therapy scholarships that prioritize Black women and the BIPOC population Through 1-on-1 talk therapy our grantees will have a safe space to cope, express themselves and seek professional advice without having the burden of costs. Funding will go directly towards therapy scholarships and operational costs.

We're a small but mighty team of 3, thank you for helping us heal with pride.
