The Brown Therapist Network is a community learning hub tailored to south Asian therapists around the globe. We create connections between therapist’s, elevate brown voices, and aspire to cultivate change. We have come together to develop professional & personal skills, decolonise mental health, emphasis south Asian mental health and grow together, as a community.
Our network is all about collaboration and continued learning. We know what it is like to feel alone. In many cases this can cause the passion to support our community to fizzle away. This is why we created the Brown Therapist Network, to create a space that is supportive, nurturing and ultimately transformative.
We are here to create a change in research and clinical practice for South Asians across the world. Our mission consists of four key parts:
Inspiring learning and development at every level, from mentoring students to fostering practice development for professionals.
We want South Asian professionals to be visible at the highest levels, so the next generation understand our voices exist in mental health.
This will be a space to connect with each other and share our rich experiences, cultural heritage and our unique struggles, without fear, or judgement.
Challenging Eurocentrism in therapy and addressing challenges the South Asian communities face will help us attain better outcomes for South Asian clients.
