Join us for “Cultural Connections,” a periodic meetup dedicated to fostering dialogue, support, and empowerment amongst Black women on matters of mental health. Presented by First Seed Psychiatry and facilitated by seasoned hosts deeply committed to fostering a platform for Black women, our sessions offer a safe and open space to explore mental health topics tailored to their unique experiences.

At Cultural Connections, we recognize the importance of addressing the unique challenges faced by Black women when it comes to mental wellness. Through facilitated conversations, we explore a range of topics including stress management, coping with racial trauma, building resilience, self-care practices, and accessing resources in the community.
