This morning when I woke up I wanted to share yuletide greetings with the larger IPAS mental health family. I wanted to take a moment to speak positive affirmations of worth, love, and strength into the lives and future of our mental health community. But instead I woke up to this New York Times headline:
“Black Doctor Dies of Covid-19 After Complaining of Racist Treatment”

This article reminded me of the work we (providers) still have to do. This article reminded me of the reason why IPAS clinicians have come together as a mental health community to support and affirm the needs of all people in a respectful, culturally attuned, evidenced based manner. This article reminded me of IPAS’s ultimate mission: To provide quality mental health care to the BIPOC, MaGes, LGBTQIA communities in a safe and supportive space.
So as we embark on this New Year, IPAS mental health is proud to provide the needed outreach and mental health support for all communities that is safe and respectful of your unique experience. To learn more about our clinicians please reach out to us at ipasinc.net or follow us on Instagram or Facebook.
Wishing you the best and safest of holiday seasons!
