Finding the right apps and digital spaces that speak to the direct experiences of the Black community can feel like a challenge. Over the last few years, conversations around mental health within the Black community have taken on a new form. With talks of therapy, unlearning trauma, and self-care becoming more normalized than ever before, finding the right support for our shared cultural experiences has felt more in reach, especially during uncertain times. With that in mind, we’ve put together a collection of Black-owned wellness apps to keep you calm and centered, no matter what life tries to throw at you.
