The Feelings Healers’ Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Mental Health

The Feelings Healers is a collective of mental health professionals committed to serving all members of our diverse community with acceptance, humility, respect, and dignity.

We know it is the diversity of our staff and clients, each with their own unique identities and experiences, that strengthens our work through collaborative practice, innovation, and acceptance. We are dedicated to cultivating an environment where equity, inclusion, and mutual respect are inherently practiced and encouraged.

We know that mental health care has upheld systemic barriers both within the therapeutic space and outside it, contributing to disparities in power, control, and privilege that have deeply harmed individuals and groups, most especially BIPoC, LGBTQ+, and people who hold other marginalized identities. The Feelings Healers is committed to taking actionable steps that promote liberatory thinking, multicultural humility, advocate for social justice, and reform the mental health care system for the betterment of all.

We aim to foster a brave space where clients, community members, and mental health care professionals from all walks of life can come together to be seen, valued, and supported.
