6LACK partners with Mental Health America of Los Angeles (MHALA) and global therapy service BetterHelp in an effort for communities of color to gain better access to mental health resources and destigmatize mental health conversations.
The singer and BetterHelp will donate six months’ worth of therapy to 50 BIPOC students in MHALA’s Transition-age Youth (TAY) Program. The TAY Program helps young adults ages 18-25—most of whom have aged out of foster care—with mental health needs and emotional disturbances, and who are homeless or nearly homeless, to fully integrate into society. It has also helped youth navigate the rough waters of adulthood amidst a global pandemic, often without parental figures for guidance
In the PSA, the artist states, “This year took a toll on all of us. Mentally, it was rough and it’s not always easy getting the support we deserve. 1 in 3 Black adults who need mental health care don’t receive it. We need to change the system.”
