Free Mental Health Care for BIPOC in South King County by BIPC in South King County!
SKEWL: South King Emotional Wellness League - BIPOC
Demand for mental health care is skyrocketing, but communities of color are less likely to have access. A new program is working to change all that with access totally free mental health care in South King County—no insurance needed. The program is called “SKEWL” and stands for South King Emotional Wellness League.

Thriving Thursdays with WSCC!
Washington State Community Connectors (WSCC)
WSCC has a Thriving Thursday weekly virtual shared space meet-up! We would love to have you join us! Each week we come together to check in and see how our week is going and have a short training segment. We have a great core group who participate weekly and each week is stand alone so if you can't come regularly, feel free to stop in when you can! It is a great place to refill our cups, learn a little, laugh a little, share a little, and build new relationships.
The registration link below works for any and all of the meetings throughout the rest of 2021:
Thursdays from 10:30am - 12Noon

Request an In Our Own Voice presentation
In Our Own Voice is a free 60-minute virtual presentation featuring two community speakers who share their personal experiences living with mental health struggles. In Our Own Voice presentations change attitudes, dispel myths about, and put a face to mental health conditions by addressing the reality of living with mental illness. Visit namiseattle.org/requestaprogram to bring In Our Own Voice to your staff meeting, community group, college class, faith community, or professional development event.

NAMI Seattle has continued to expand our free, drop-in support groups (all groups are currently meeting virtually via Zoom) for people who need their own mental health support, and for family members. Visit our Support Groups page to learn more about our groups or register to attend an upcoming meeting.
