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.
The average directory listing costs $20-$40 per month. By offering a free provider directory, we are saving our providers around $360 dollars per year!
Therapy sessions can cost anywhere from $80-$200+, on average $100. By offering 12 sessions of FREE Therapy, we are saving clients an average of $1,500.
Please consider helping us continue to support saving our providers money and time, so they can continue to do amazing work for our communities:
