8 Black Therapists to Follow on Instagram for a Mental Health Pick-Me-Up
July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
Have you ever scrolled through your Instagram feed and felt like something was missing? While you may like a few photos from your favorite influencers or comment on a friend's picture of their new puppy, most of the time, you're probably aimlessly scrolling out of boredom with no end in sight. The truth is, your Instagram probably needs some substance—and one of the ways you can add some is by following a few therapist accounts that'll give you a nice mental health boost.
But with thousands of mental health professionals on the 'gram, it's important to highlight Black therapists and mental health experts who are making a difference in the BIPOC community. And because one in five American adults live with a mental illness and the majority of Americans (74%) do not believe most mental health services are accessible for everyone, according to an annual America’s Mental Health study, Instagram can be a one-stop shop to access mental care on a no-cost level.
So if you're looking to add a few therapists to your feed, we suggest following these eight Black therapists ASAP.
