Summary

In honor of BIPOC Mental Health Month, we are looking to sustain our impact supporting clinicians who work with historically marginalized communities, many of whom face the highest mortality during the COVID pandemic. Our recent efforts include launching the podcast "We Do Hope," a six-part series that presents easy-to-absorb material through a conversational format, briefly exploring topics such as chronic sorrow and self-compassion. With the help of our supporters, we aim to do even more.

Challenge

We appeal to our generous donors during BIPOC Mental Health Month to help sustain our efforts to support clinicians who work with historically marginalized communities, many of whom come from the same communities they serve. These clinicians serve a population with little or no access to remote work, precisely the people who fared the worst during the COVID pandemic. We work tirelessly to design programs that address the exhaustion, moral distress, anger and frustration they experience.

Solution

We have developed a wealth of comprehensive resources to deliver important content for our constituency. The most exciting of these is the launch of our W2W podcast. Aptly named "We Do Hope," the six-part series presents easy-to-absorb material through a conversational format, briefly exploring topics such as microaggressions, chronic sorrow, and self-compassion. We publish timely articles each month on the MCN blog and link to important new research. Our resources are accessible and inclusive.

Long-Term Impact

We have exciting plans for the coming year, including revised goals to expand our impact. GlobalGiving is offering a wonderful incentive: donors who set up a new monthly donation to a project will have their first donation up to $200 matched at 100%! For example, set up a new $25 monthly donation, and we'll donate an additional $25 to the project one time. With your help we can contribute to the well-being of communities that have suffered far too long already.
