The opportunity to take time to think about how you feel, especially as black men, we don’t do, was eye opening and helped me realize that I was neglecting things I didn’t know even existed.



The biggest takeaway from that workshop was that it has taught me to be more conscious and mindful with myself.

  • Giving

    Because we are all in this together.

Mental illness affects the entire family which is why in order to create real change, we need to engage the community, at all ages.

We believe by sharing stories, having intergenerational conversations informed by medical experts (Habesha of course), we can achieve our vision of transforming our community’s response to mental health from fear and distancing to compassion and support.

Donate today and make a difference in the lives of people in our community challenged by their mental health.

  • Reasons to Give

Your support ensures that our programming remains open and accessible.

Donations are an investment in culturally specific programming made by Habesha people for Habesha people.

By supporting us, you are contributing to the personal and emotional development of our participants by arming them with knowledge and tools to face complex challenges.
