Inclusive Mental Health Initiative

We promote multicultural mental health awareness.

As part of Spark Center’s Inclusive Mental Health Initiative, we’re investing our resources in the effort toward strengthening the knowledge, skills, and understanding necessary to promote therapeutic environments that heighten multicultural clinical awareness and encourage equitable participation of all groups while seeking to address and acknowledge issues of oppression, privilege, and power.

In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, our priority at this time is to identify and develop innovative mental health service delivery models to better reach and support Black communities in order to provide affordable and accessible therapeutic services that are aligned with and attuned to the unique needs and challenges of Black individuals, couples, and families, including race-based traumatic stress, racialized grief, internalized oppression, and stigma.

Currently, we’re directing our attention and energy toward creating and launching online Collective Healing Forums for facilitated support groups and psychoeducational workshops to promote racial healing practices and sustainable allyship.

Whenever possible, Collective Healing Forums will be reparation-based, meaning donations from allies will subsidize the cost of events that promote the healing of Black participants who are experiencing financial hardships. Please note that donations are not tax-deductible at this time.
