Our Mental Health Initiative
TaskForce is dedicated to building healthier, stronger, and more vibrant communities. As we continue to provide a space where you can feel valued for who you are, we encourage you to prioritize your mental wellness. We remind you that taking care of your mental health takes many forms – including therapy, rest, and grace. Be gentle and give yourself the attention that you deserve. Our mission is to foster resilience, self-acceptance, and personal growth and we will provide a supportive community as you navigate your mental health journey.
About the Mental Health and Wellness Program
At TaskForce, we are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and affirming space for individuals within the community to prioritize and nurture their mental and emotional well-being.
We understand that the intersection of one’s identity can be uniquely complex, and we are here to offer specialized support that centers these experiences. Our mental health program includes traditional, alternative, and restorative approaches as we understand the disparities that exist within access to culturally competent mental health resources. To help mitigate these obstacles, we have an on-site mental health professional that is equipped to help community members navigate their mental wellness.
Our resources have been curated by collecting feedback from community members about what they need and desire. We are committed to providing practical strategies that are impactful for our community and that span a wide range of issues.
We seek to break down the barriers surrounding mental health, promote open conversations, and provide you with the tools you need to prioritize your well-being. Remember, seeking help is a courageous step, and you deserve to live a life that is mentally and emotionally fulfilling.
