What is Supporting Healthy Black Families’ (SHBF)? What does it provide?

SHBF workgroups are community-based programming that takes participants on a journey of self-discovery. In which space is cultivated and tools are provided for them to unpack their trauma and heal while learning the root of it all.  Building analysis of white supremacy racism and identifying the impact it has on our souls; our perception--leading to disempowerment and embodiment of inferiority complex.  In identifying the source of our trauma and perceptions participants are inspired and empowered and experience breakthroughs & transformation. Our workgroups are like no other. We utilize a multidisciplinary approach and curriculum.  Including metaphysics, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, trauma recovery, Black his-story, neuroscience, and more. 

We also provide advocacy and wrap-around support.  Our transformative education enrolls Black people into leadership; decreases stress and internal dialogues that are incongruent with growth--directly addressing the root of health disparities and inequalities in our community. SHBF is a 90-day leadership workgroup.  That increases the capacity of Black people to support and love themselves, their families, and each other.

SHBF is designed to bring about positive, permanent shifts in how we define and understand the depth and breadth of white supremacy racism. Shifts that are the direct cause for a new kind of freedom and POWER—the freedom to acknowledge and accept our history, and the personal power to do something about it. Thus, impacting the confidence with which Black people live their lives.

Our SHBF program has seen amazing results, with a 90% graduation rate and 80% of graduates embodying and projecting leadership in different areas of their lives. This includes, but is not limited to starting their own business(es), running for elected office, volunteering, organizing census campaigns, joining grassroots organizations, and/or taking on leadership roles within Urban Triage, Inc.

We are on a mission to increase Black personal wellness and community wellness. If you would like to join us on our mission, please click HERE.

"Urban Triage's SHBF has been life changing for me. It has changed the way I view myself, my relationships, and the world I live in. The tools I have learned here and the wisdom that comes from each person in the cohort being teachers, learners, and each other's mirror is magical. I have used these tools to heal relationships that i thought were unrepairable, especially my relationship with myself.

It is so easy to stay in and go back to the familiar but I want to walk in integrity. I want to be accountable even when it isn't easy. I am remembering what it means to trust myself and relearning how to show up for and as me in every space. I want everyone I know to participate in at least one SHBF cohort. This work is needed. I am thankful for Brandi for creating something so powerful from a space of love and continuing to be vulnerable and grow with us."
