Healing for the mind, body & soul
The California Black Women's Health Project (CABWHP) is the only statewide, non-profit organization that is solely committed to improving the health of California's 1.2 million Black women and girls through advocacy, education, outreach and policy. We focus on empowering Black women to take personal responsibility for our own health and to advocate for changes in policies that negatively affect Black women's health status.
Improving the Health of Black Women in California
California Health Care Foundation powerful interview with CABWHP CEO, Sonya Young Aadam
"We envision a healthier future when Black women are empowered to make choices in an environment where health equity and justice are community priorities —and where our labor is matched with adequate support, not with crumbs." - CEO Sonya Young Aadam
Sisters Mentally Mobilized is coming back
to the Inland Empire this Fall!
Starting Fall 2020, our Sisters Mentally Mobilized (SMM) statewide movement will begin training Black women in the Inland Empire to become mental health community advocates in order to launch mental health-focused Sister Circles in the communities where Black women live, work, play, and pray. Join us as we build an army of Black women across California to reduce the stigma of mental health and provide sister circles of support for mental wellness. Our Sister Circles and Mental Health Initiative SMM are providing necessary social connections for our sisters to thrive and be mentally well during COVID-19!
Congratulations on the graduation of the first cohort of Mindful Beauty, a mental health intervention that trains black beauticians/hairstylists to support better mental health and wellness for their clients and our community.
