Black Mental Wellness® Conference

The COVID pandemic highlighted the pre-existing disparities related to mental health access, treatment, and outcomes. Since 2020, it has been a time of loss, grief, collective pain, and significant life changes for so many of us and few people are talking about the mental toll of these experiences, particularly in the Black community. 


To address this we launched the Black Mental Wellness ® Conference in 2020. This conference is dedicated to uplifting the Black community and continues to emphasize the importance of naming our range of feelings, while remaining empowered to heal during these emotionally challenging times.​ This is a conference for anyone who is invested in Black mental health and wellness.

Now in our fifth year, we are excited to announce that the conference, Disrupting Spaces, will be held in person for the first time. Our goal of this Annual Conference is to challenge the status quo and highlight game-changing, ground breaking efforts aimed at disrupting spaces in the field of mental health in the Black community.

Black Mental Wellness, Corp. is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists.  Continuing education for psychologists are available for registrants who attend the live conference.  Black Mental Wellness, Corp. maintains responsibility for this conference and its content. For additional information on continuing education, please contact: Dr. Danielle Busby at
