Deconstructing the Mental Health System is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization status and donations are tax deductible.

Makinie Fortino founded Deconstructing the Mental Health System, as a means to bring anti-racist therapists together to address the mental health system’s racial and financial inequities, through education and other initiatives, such as a free provider listing for BIPOC Therapists.

INITIATIVES:

DIRECTORY: FIND A MENTAL HEALTH OR CULTURAL WELLNESS PROVIDER WHO IS BLACK, INDIGENOUS, OR A PERSON OF COLOR
