Getcha Mind Right


What is Getcha Mind Right?

An innovative therapeutic approach aimed toward dispelling the mental health stigma while incorporating group therapy, peace circles and peer-to-peer support in order to address the root causes of trauma.

This program was designed to provide a space where young adults can begin to address 4 components that play a role in trauma awareness:

  • Violence Prevention– conversations about lived experiences and how the outcomes of those experiences have affects at the micro-, mezzo-, and macrolevels.
  • Health and Wellness– Healing from traumatic experiences or events are a process and therefore, require professional support systems, knowledge and access to healthy food options, and structured/intentional positive body movement.
  • Financial Literacy– By educating participants in financial literacy, we’re able to improve financial well-being, break the cycles of intergenerational financial crises and create pathways out of poverty.
  • Community Engagement– having knowledge of resources within one’s community, activating public spaces to engage others and encouraging unity amongst community residents and stakeholders for long-term impact.
