Hope & Faith is a partnership with PEERS and African American faith-based institutions where we provide mental health education in the church. Historically, African Americans have been poorly treated by the American medical system, and that has not only resulted in poor health outcomes of African Americans but a mistrust of non-POC health care providers.

The Black church has been and is a social and communal space where Black people feel safe, heard, and understood, but it is not the only solution or safe space for African Americans to have discussions around mental health or understand it. 

This campaign’s purpose is to recognize that spirituality is an aspect of mental wellness, increase conversations of mental health, provide mental health facts, and provide support for those seeking to address their mental health concerns.
