BMH Connect seeks to promote the emotional health of Black children who suffer from high rates of stress related to racial discrimination in the United States. Our programming focuses on giving Black youth the education and coping skills needed to manage racial trauma and empower them to reclaim their childhood.

Mental health awareness and education is key in our fight to save the lives of Black children. We understand the stigma around mental health in our community, so we've created a safe place for you to learn the signs and symptoms of mental distress so you have the power to advocate for your child's mental health needs, if necessary. 


We use a variety of ways to expand your knowledge on issues that matter to Black children including blogs written by clinicians of color and recommendations for books, articles, movies, and websites in our resource center.
