No More Martyrs - Founded by Nadia M. Richardson, PhD

No More Martyrs is a mental health awareness campaign committed to building an online community of support for Black women with mental health concerns.  Founded by Dr. Nadia M. Richardson, the campaign serves as a clearinghouse of resources for living successfully with mental health concerns as well as a virtual support system for Black women who believe they are facing these issues alone.

By bringing together organizations from across the country that focus on the holistic wellness of Black women, No More Martyrs seeks to unapologetically address the various forms of discrimination that threaten mental wellness.  It is our hope that the information provided and discussions facilitated through this campaign will positively impact lives as well as inspire decision-makers to creatively address mental health concerns for everyone.
