Join the movement to make
mental wellness care accessible and achievable 
for all women. 

Sista Afya Community Care

Free and affordable culturally-centered mental wellness care.

Women are at least twice as likely to experience an episode of major depression as men

Compared to their white counterparts, Black women are only half as likely to seek help.

Sista Afya Community Care exists to change that.


A much-needed space where Black women can connect and heal

SACC focuses our programs on serving Black women and girls. We believe that supporting Black women and girls can help to change the trajectory of their lives by engaging them in culturally responsive and gender-responsive mental wellness care.


Through SACC’s three programs, we provide a variety of ways to engage and get support: individual therapy, groups, and community community connection level.


Thrive in Therapy

Free community mental wellness care for women experiencing multiple barriers to care, including but not limited to individual therapy with a trained mental wellness professional.
