Black Therapists Rock
An Online Community Conversation With Deran Young
Thoughts of the black community often conjure up an ongoing saga of reliance, incredible strength, and perseverance, in spite of a brutally harsh past. However, the obvious connection between mental health and racial oppression, health disparities, cultural differences, poverty, and reduced quality of life often goes unspoken. Black Therapists Rock is a movement that is passionate about speaking the varied truths to begin the healing of emotional wounds that are multiple generations deep. Join us in discussion with Black Therapists Rock founder Deran Young, whose philosophy of service leadership is based on her lived experiences with poverty, military service and travels to West Africa. Deran is driven by a passion for diversity and dedication to unity, which has led to her own healing and that of others.
