low-cost community mental wellness services centering black women in Chicago since 2017.
At Sista Afya Community Mental Wellness, we believe that together, Black women across the African Diaspora can sustain mental wellness through connecting to resources and supporting one another.
We fulfill this through our mission of sustaining the mental wellness of Black women through building community, sharing information, and connecting Black women to quality mental wellness services. We believe that by making mental wellness simple, accessible, affordable, and centered around Black women’s experiences, more people will get what they need to have a full, whole life.
