Provident therapist LaTanya Mackey was recently interviewed on Fox 2 and KMOV about the unique challenges faced by Black people during this period of social change.

When talking about COVID-19, job loss, and videos of police violence, LaTanya had this to say: “It’s impacting people at a greater rate than the toxic stress we’re already experiencing, day-to-day, being Black in America.”

Intake Specialist Ryan Ralliereported that Provident’s phones immediately rang following LaTanya’s interview, with people who recognized their own symptoms of stress and called for help.
