Who we are?
We are a team of health and wellness
practitioners and community advocates who are committed to and are passionate about
the healing of our people wherever they might be. We are brought together by a
strong desire to center our rich history and cultural teachings in mental health and
wellness spaces. We come from many academic disciplines and professional career paths
and are keenly interested in supporting each other and our community across the globe.
We come together out of deep concern of the profound impact of psychosocial stressors and health disparities. We strongly believe that centered healing and wellness spaces are key to individual and collective transformations and growth. We continue to honor each individual’s lived experiences, courage, and resiliencies in all our services and supports.
Our mission is to create Somali Health and Wellness Professionals Network to promote, share wisdom, experiences, and research on culturally responsive prevention and intervention strategies to support Somali individuals and families in their journey to healing – effectively improving the health and well-being of our communities.
