Joining the Community For Healing and A Call to Action
Mayor Darrell Steinberg and the Office of Civic Engagement joined more than 50 community leaders and healers at Luther Burbank High School to take the first steps toward mobilizing hundreds of mental health professionals to help address generations of accumulated trauma among members of Sacramento’s black community.
We need your help. We are calling on licensed mental health professionals, healers and navigators to volunteer time and expertise over the coming months as we create a collaborative resource network to address our community’s dire need for culturally competent trauma-informed education and counseling resources.
In the months to come, we will help coordinate an array of community health resources such as healing circles, meditation practices, or one-on-one counseling for people in need of support or who want to learn more. We are gathering information from interested residents and neighbors with this short survey.
