Advocating for Your Black Child (A4YBC) is a free, 8-week psycho-education series for Black parents and caregivers of Black children & teens (elementary-high school) living with mental health and/or learning differences. Advocating for Your Black Child (A4YBC) is offered in a virtual group setting so that you can safely and confidently connect with other Black Parents.
Each A4YBC cohort provides critical information & strategies created specifically with the Black family in mind. The A4YBC curriculum provides a wealth of practical resources throughout the series. It was designed specifically to support the Black family in navigating school, political and social systems for your child.
We cover a variety of topics, which include:
Accessing the appropriate academic services & support for your child within the public school system
Systemic Racism and navigating White spaces
Learning about mental health differences
Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
Utilizing community resources
Obstacles to effective parenting
Alternative and Allopathic treatment methods
The course is taught by trained clinical & health professionals and those with lived experiences — who understand what you're going through because they've been there.
