MEDIUM: Digital Illustration; Infographic; Instagram Account
Instagram account that shares mental health information targeted at BIPOC communities.
As a Counseling Psychology doctoral student and Psychologist-in-Training, my clinical interests are providing culturally competent psychotherapy for BIPOC college students from low-income backgrounds. In this work, I have discovered that because there are structural and systemic barriers to psychotherapy, mental healthcare, and mental health professionals, many individuals are turning to the internet to learn about mental health and mental illness. I wanted to create a social media profile that shares evidence-based information on psychology for the individuals who have began their journey into making sense of their own experiences.
