The problem

It’s estimated that around 1 in 5 U.S. adults live with some sort of mental illness. These may come from any racial or ethnic background, but the CDC states that minorities often find it harder than white people to get the mental health care they need.

The cause

There are a number of reasons for this—sometimes ethnic minorities lack adequate funds or health insurance cover; sometimes they may struggle to find providers from their cultural group. Sometimes stigma in minority communities can prevent individuals from seeking support; at others, racial discrimination may play a part.

The effect

Minorities may be more likely to experience poor mental health, leading to a disparity between the racial groups and the need for increased provision, awareness-raising, and outreach to those within ethnic minority groups.

Loop Health's Solution

At Loop Health, we wanted to tackle the challenge head on, providing a specialized service that addressed each and every one of the barriers that ethnic minorities face when seeking mental health support. Here’s how:

Our Solution
Minorities face financial barriers to healthcare or lack insurance
Many of our resources are free. For paid-for services, we work hard to keep our prices low
Hard to find therapists and practitioners from the same cultural background
All of our team and all therapists are from ethnic minority groups
Stigma about seeking treatment among minority communities
We offer all of our services online, so nobody in the outside world needs to know you’re accessing them
Racial and ethnic discrimination
Not here. The Loop Health online community is fully culturally competent and accepting of all human beings, regardless of race or color
