Will you support our black psychotherapy students so they can serve you?

Hey Mindful Yardies, I hope the day finds you well? I came across this campaign recently which is really close to my heart and had to share it with you to see if you can help?

Training to become a psychotherapist is an incredibly difficult path. Not only because you’re required to bare your soul as part of the process, but as a black person, you also have to navigate the racial dynamics inside a system which still has a long way to go in serving the needs of people of colour.

To address this issue, Eugene Ellis, founded  the Black and Asian Therapists Network (BAATN). The project provides mutual support for practicing therapists, along with an amazing platform to meet the therapeutic needs of  our community. I have used their services both  personally and professionally as part of my ongoing psychotherapy training.  It has been an amazing community to safely explore and identify with others regarding the challenges of racism inside these learning institutions.

In building the future of BAATN, the project needs your support  today to address the high drop-out rate of students in training by offering an  ‘Each One Teach One’ mentorship programme. The project has already been running for a few years but needs a boost and there are only a few days left to pledge!

Please give what you can, our community needs to support these new therapists so we can provide the services you deserve!
