Since Saturday, May 14th, the BestSelf Black Mental Health Response Team has been providing support to those impacted by the horrific, racist event at Tops Markets on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo. In partnership with Erie County, Resource Council of WNY, Tops Markets and other community partners, we have been providing trauma informed services to help our community to begin healing. In addition, our mobile outreach teams have begun to go out into the community to ensure everyone who needs assistance receives it.
BestSelf is working hard to ensure that everyone has access to what they need to begin healing from the vicious attack on our Black community so we are establishing a Mental Health Response Fund. While BestSelf will receive some support from government agencies in our efforts, that funding will not cover all of the many support services and supplies we are providing.
We invite you to help us continue this work by donating to our Mental Health Response Fund.
