Join us for an evening with Ebony Butler, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist and food relationship strategist who has made it her mission to help women of color heal and thrive in the areas of trauma and diet recovery.
Dr. Butler will review the current barriers that exist within mental health regarding access, stigma, and affordability. Attendees will learn about resources to reduce barriers to quality mental health care, including Dr. Butler's My Therapy Cards, created specifically to address mental health barriers within BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities. These cards are newly available for check out in the Boston Public Library collection.
Everyone is welcome to this talk, especially those who are starting their mental health journey.
