DRK Beauty Healing: Free Therapy for WOC

DRK Beauty  is a digital community and content platform that aims to  support, celebrate and empower individuals who identify as women of color. DRK Beauty recently launched a mental health initiative, DRK Beauty Healing  which is dedicated to providing 10,000 hours of free therapy to women of color in the U.S. affected by COVID-19 and other unjust experiences.

We know that the disproportionate rate of socio-economic hardship makes women of color more likely to meet the diagnostic criteria for mental health challenges. Whether it’s illness, death, self-isolation, job loss, domestic abuse or fear of familial loss or safety, the mental health fallout for these already vulnerable women will be enormous. Getting access to mental health care is beyond the reach for many of them and that will only get worse with the ongoing pandemic and events stemming from injustice.

DRK Beauty launched DRK Beauty Healing on May 15, 2020. We created an opportunity to immediately address the lack of appropriate attention that women of color are receiving in the mental health space. As a part of our mental health initiative, we are actively building a coalition of therapists who have donated 10+ hours of their time to provide therapy to women of color.

At this time, we would be deeply appreciative of your financial support towards our mental health initiative that communities of color need now more than ever. 80% of your donation will directly go towards funding clinicians who can continue to provide free therapy; the remaining 20% will be allocated for legal and administrative fees to effectively resource the initiative. Ultimately, your support will ensure short and long-term sustainability of DRK Beauty Healing and will undoubtedly have a generational healing effect.

Thank you.
