Adura Community Therapy Fund (for Black Women)

About the fund!
Black women go through a lot. Racism in the day to day, discrimination and microaggressions at work, over-sexualization leading to higher rates of sexual assault, rising rates of suicide, and more. We're dealing with increasingly unprecedented times, and Black women, the "strong ones", are continually overlooked and left to suffer in silence with very little (if any) care and gentleness sent our way.
 
Therapy, while helpful and "trendy" now, remains inaccessible and out of reach for many, along with other mental health resources. This fund aims to solve that problem by collecting and sending funds to Black women in need of therapy. If it weren't for funds like this, I wouldn't have received therapy myself. If you can't give, please share.

About Me!
Hi there!
 
My name is Jacque and I'm a founder (Adorned by Chi ) who found myself suffering from a deep depression, suicidal ideation, and more. The pressure I felt daily led to depression-induced insomnia...which led to some of the scariest nights of my life.
 
Since then I've improved greatly and I've been moved to help others who are going through something similar. I applied to grad school to become a mental health counselor and I launched a passion project to help people establish stress-relieving nighttime routines- Adura.

About Adura!
Adura is a pop-up self-care brand, focused on making nighttime wellness rituals cute AF!
 
After COVID-19 blanketed the world in a haze of confusion and fear, mental health became a national talking point and cases of depression tripled in the United States. Evenings can be a particularly challenging time for those dealing with depression, as they may find it hard to sleep, and may find the quietness of the night isolating.
 
After such a tough year, and many tough nights, it’s about time we all slowed down and nurtured our mental wellbeing. Adura (Adu Ura) means “Soft sleep” in Igbo, and we’re dedicated to creating a self-care-centered nighttime routine that pairs adorable aesthetics with proven stress-relieving activities so you can sleep softly.
