THE UBUNTU HEALING PROJECT

Couple Showing Affection

The Ubuntu Healing Project (UHP) is a new culturally specific healing program for Black - African  queer/transgender youth and adults that bridges indigenous, cultural, and gender-affirming healing practices with western mental and physical health, and provides a workplace centered at the intersection of race and gender. The Project is a collaborative partnership between Black & Beyond the Binary Collective, Brave Space, LLC, and Second Fruit Wellness Services, LLC.

 

The Project is committed to building a professional community that supports Black – African queer/transgender professionals, and includes 1 clinical supervisor, 1 mental health therapist (QMHP), and 1 community health worker (CHW). Further, the Project will build a pool of guest practitioners who offer indigenous healing from an African-centered lens, which may include acupuncture, reiki, spiritual ritual, community healing groups, massage, or naturopathy; physical health care services; and gender-related services.
