Sista Afya is a social impact business that supports Black Women through mental wellness education, resource connection, community support and merchandise that is simple, accessible, and centers their experiences.
I am a Social Worker and live with a mental health condition. I started Sista Afya to provide community support to Black women like me who live with mental health conditions. We strive to provide low-cost mental wellness support to Black women in Chicago, however, some women who need to attend our workshops do not have the finances to pay full price admission which is $12.
Buying a coffee will allow 5 women who've experienced barriers in accessing quality mental health care and community support to attend our monthly workshops.
Our workshops help women to understand how to access care and implement mental wellness in their daily lives so they can not just survive, but thrive.
