Mental Health for Africans
Our goal is to empower African immigrants and Refugees to overcome the stigma of therapy shaming through advocacy and access to resources. Our signature awareness campaign will be held in Spring 2021.
Partnering with the R1 Researchers from the University of Utah, and local organizations, our efforts are focused on promoting whole-body health, mental health for some of our society’s most vulnerable population. Due to cultural barriers, African Immigrants may not recognize that there is a lack of cognitive, psychological, and emotional.
GK Folks Foundation Mental Health Programs is designed to support African Immigrants:
- Realize their full potential
- Cope with the stress of life
- Work Productively
- Make meaningful contributions to their communities
OUR THREE MAIN GOALS
GK Folks Foundation is a non-profit organization providing MENTAL HEALTH, EDUCATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP resources to African immigrants and refugees in the diaspora while enlightening people about Africa’s rich and diverse cultures.
