At Halumbe, our goal is to help and support Black youth who are dealing with mental health challenges. We do this by offering one-on-one and group support, using a special approach called Trauma Systems Therapy for Refugees (TST-R). We also want to help school leaders, teachers, parents, and guardians understand more about the mental health needs of Black youth. Our aim is to give them the information and tools they need to help handle these challenges.


Our vision is we aim to create a future where Black youth are resilient, thriving, and equipped with the mental and emotional well-being they need to reach their full potential. We envision a world where stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health are replaced with understanding and support. Through our project, we aspire to build a community where Black youth have access to culturally responsive and trauma-informed mental health resources, enabling them to lead fulfilling lives, both in their educational journeys and beyond.
