Advocating for Your Black Child (A4YBC) is a free, 8-week psycho-education series for Black parents and caregivers of Black children & teens (elementary-high school) living with mental health and/or learning differences. Advocating for Your Black Child (A4YBC) is offered in a virtual group setting so that you can safely and confidently connect with other Black Parents.  


Each A4YBC cohort provides critical information & strategies created specifically with the Black family in mind.   The A4YBC curriculum provides a wealth of practical resources throughout the series. It was designed specifically to support the Black family in navigating school, political and social systems for your child.   


We cover a variety of topics, which include:  

  •  Accessing the appropriate academic services & support for your child within the public school system  

  • Systemic Racism and navigating White spaces  


  • Learning about behavioral health and neurological differences

  • Social Emotional Learning (SEL)  

  • Utilizing community resources    

  • Obstacles to effective parenting 


  • Alternative and Allopathic treatment methods   

The course is taught by trained clinical & health professionals and those with lived experiences — who understand what you're going through because they've been there.
