"The Safe Place" Is a Minority Mental Health App geared towards the Black Community. African Americans are 20% more likely to experience serious mental health problems than the rest of the general population. However, many black people still do not wish to seek professional help for their mental illnesses.
The Purpose of the "Safe Place" is to bring more awareness, education, and hope to this serious issue. Not only can the black community benefit from this app, but also mental health professionals, friends, and family, of ALL colors can be better educated on this issue and do a service by directing their black friends, co workers, etc. to the app.
All races go through mental illness, but we also can experience it differently because of our race and social backgrounds. "The Safe Place" can also be a great learning tool for mental health professional's to better understand their black patients.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app to inspire discussion of black mental health.
I really like the tips and articles this app provides. It’s definitely a conversation starter around mental health that will not allow the black community to slip through the cracks. Thanks for allowing us to create our own narrative! That alone makes this app worth giving a try. The only extra thing I would like for this app is for there to be an interactive component for those who wish to start discussion on specific topics regarding black mental health. Thanks for this!
