Halumbe Wellness Project is a school-based program that strives to promote the mental health and wellbeing of Black youth through a trauma-informed and culturally responsive approach. We are committed to reducing stigma, improving access to mental health support, and promoting resilience within the Black community.
With Halumbe, we aim to empower and uplift Black youth by addressing their mental health challenges through individual and group mental health support grounded in Trauma Systems Therapy for Refugees (TST-R). We aim to foster awareness and understanding among school administration, teachers, parents and guardians about the mental health needs of Black youth and equip them with the knowledge and tools to navigate 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.
