MENTAL HEALTH FUND

About the Mental Health Fund

The Mental Health Fund (MHF) for Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous and People of Color began as a pilot project in 2017 in response to the increased violence, threats, surveillance, and instability following the presidential election in 2016. The MHF provides financial assistance to Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous and People of Color to increase access to mental health support for QTBIPOC by QTBIPOC*.
