in 2015, 86% of psychologists in the U.S. workforce were White, 5% were Asian, 5% were Hispanic, 4% were Black/ African-American, and 1% were multiracial/ from other racial/ethnic groups. Compared to the racial/ ethnic composition of the U.S. population as a whole, BIPOC clinicians are grossly underrepresented. We recognize an imperative need for BIPOC clinicians to have a strong support system, a space where you can feel safe to share your vulnerabilities and heal.
We are part of a BIPOC clinician support group in Chicago to promote unity and foster a supportive community for BIPOC clinicians in the Chicago area. We welcome mental health therapists, psychiatrists, physicians, dietitians, and others in allied fields. Our peer support group will meet monthly in a virtual space, and members should feel safe to use the group forums to hold regular discussions.
