Mental Health MATTERS!

Campaign has ended.

As someone who has been going to therapy for years and is an aspiring counselor, I believe that counseling is one of the most critical and helpful resources one can have access to in order to be mentally and emotionally well. Counseling is key to helping individuals overcome trauma, cope with loss, and deal with really anything taxing them emotionally. Over the past few months, I have been learning more and more about the traumatic experiences Black people in America face both in the current day and as a result of generational trauma. Knowing how important counseling is and what a difference it has made in my life, I want to contribute to the Loveland Foundation so Black women and children can receive the treatment they need to be mentally well. I'm hoping to end this fundraiser by August 1 so that this money can be given in July in honor of BIPOC Mental Health Month, as well! Love y'all and thank you for donating :) 

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund. Whether you have already donated or you are just learning about the project, we are grateful to have you on board.


 With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. We wanted to change that. 


In our pilot program, we raised over $250,000 with the support of our generous community and provided financial assistance to hundreds of Black women and girls to go to therapy. We did this through collaborative partnerships with  Therapy for Black Girls, Open Path Collective, National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, and Talkspace, networks and service providers that are all committed to making therapy more affordable and accessible. 


No matter how much you are able to give, we are excited to work together with our community again to bring therapy support directly to Black women and girls who need it. Please donate now to tangibly tell these women and girls, “We see you, we hear you, and we are invested in your healing.”Generations will benefit from their healing.
