black therapists rock. the black community is often thought of as an ongoing saga of reliance, incredible strength, and preseverance, in spite of a brutally harsh past. however, the obvious connection between mental health and racial oppression, health dis parities, cultural differences, societal factors, poverty, and reduced quality of life, often goes unspoken. thousands of black people are suffering in the shadows while making every attempt to be seen. although there is no single narrative, mental health and psychosocial wellness underpin many of the challenges experienced by black people. black therapists rock has become a movement that is passionate about loudly speaking our varied truths to begin the healing of emotional wounds that are multiple generations deep. although we may not be the cause of this deep-seated pain, it is ours to bear and soothe. the professional perspectives shared in this book strive to inspire hope, beyond the divorce courts, housing developments, emergency rooms, domestic violence shelters, broken homes, jails/prisons, homeless centers, welfare offices, or foster care systems. none of us are immune. statistically, we all have at least one relative that has experienced one or more of these situations. and now, with our #villagementality, we can offer an honest and true source of healing; with compassion, forgiveness and genuine connection for ourselves and others.
