Defining a Place in Mental Health 

These symbols are widely believed to represent psychology, psychiatry, and sometimes parapsychology. As a profession or field of study, much of what we know about mental health is developed from Western European Colonial beliefs and practices around well-being and disorder. However, we know that healing doesn't always take a reductionist, linear approach; just as we know that healers don't always look like the recognized founders and forefathers of the profession. With our Melanating Mental Health, Psychology, and Counseling designs, we are proclaiming that the historic and present-day wisdom of BIPOC folk is vital to the practice of mental health.
