Here you will find important mental health and community resources! We prioritize resources led by and for QTBIPOC and BIPOC folks, as well as resources aligned with healing justice. However, we understand that given the limited number of mental health supports for our people, we also share some more mainstream mental health resources to ensure as much access as possible.
We encourage you to get to know the organizations listed in order to best understand their history, mission, and approach to this work. We specifically want to name that several of the crisis hotlines on this list are not abolitionist and collaborate with law enforcement which may put QTBIPOC at risk when accessing care. We understand that many in our community may still need to rely upon these resources during a crisis while we collectively build more alternatives rooted in healing justice and abolition.
