Project Description

Where's My Breakthrough? an innovation platform for people of color share mental health stories and connect with therapists. We strive to normalize common mental health challenges, uplift diversity, and destigmatize seeking treatment.  We promote dialogue on mental health in diverse communities through engaging and informative digital channels, such as Instagram and Twitter.

 

Diversity is important in discussing mental health

Diversity is important in discussing mental health

Our audience is the millennial generation of people of color– Black, Asian, Latinx, as well as those at the intersection of gender, sexuality, and race.

With a weekly newsletter, web-based articles and a bi-monthly podcast, Where’s My Breakthrough? curates content that highlights research on clinical interventions, addresses barriers to effective mental health treatment, and spotlights profiles of people with lived experience of overcoming mental health challenges. You can see some of our past newsletters here. We will also offer a therapist directory for perspective clients to find therapists of color (or who provide culturally-sensitive care) in their area. In this manner, Where's My Breakthrough? can offer not only mental health tips but also help people take the step of finding the right therapist for their needs.

Co-founders Aisha Townes, MS MPH and Fatimah Finney, LMHC share a passion for promoting mental health education that is the core motivation behind the mission. They each bring unique skills and perspectives that drive this initiative. Aisha graduated with a degree in medical sciences and public health and is a registered yoga teacher. Fatimah is a licensed psychotherapist and owner of Healing Differently, a psychotherapy and wellness business.

We need your help to make our idea a success. We have made advances (participated in a business accelerator, conducted focus groups, contacted artists and writers) but we need funding to further our efforts. Your funds will go to paying for building the directory, outreach, and communication.  Thank you for your support!
