Self-care is so important and I find that quarantine may be tough for those who were already battling with their mental health. When I found out about DRK Beauty, I was excited to learn about their new initiative DRK Beauty Healing which offers free therapy to women of color in the United States. What a powerful way to make an impact in the community!
Founded by Wilma Mae Basta and Danielle K, Jackson, DRK Beauty is a platform that highlights diversity in beauty. The DRK Beauty Healing initiative connects women of color with clinicians nationwide. Its as simple as choosing the clinician in your preferred city, contacting the therapist, and mentioning the free offer.
Its amazing that therapists are donating their time and genuinely prioritizing women of color and their mental health. This initiative was originally offering 10,000 free hours of counseling, but Cynthia Erivo is now in partnership with DRK Beauty Healing as she donated $25,000 to expand the initiative.

This is our everlasting commitment. This space is designed for those who identify as women of color to be celebrated, supported, nurtured, and honored.

We are thankful for the many voices that have picked up the torch to join us. Today we add another light. We are so incredibly thrilled to have @cynthiaerivo as our official partner for DRK Beauty Healing!
