Black Men Heal Featured on “The Breakfast Club”

June 10, 2020 | CFR Alumna, Tasnim Sulaiman, was interviewed on the popular morning show “The Breakfast Club” hosted by Charlamagne Tha God. Tasnim appeared on the show to discuss her non-profit organization Black Men Heal, along with co-founder Zakia Williams and Board Member Charles Harris. Black Men Heal offers free mental health treatment, psycho-education, and community resources to men of color. The non-profit addresses the three main barriers for the Black community in receiving mental health treatment: cost, stigma, and finding a therapist they culturally identify with. Tasnim is a Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor with a private practice called Taz Talk Therapy. Her background in the field helped her notice the lack of emphasis and access to mental health services for men of color. She and her co-founder decided creating Black Men Heal was the best way to approach the need for services throughout the Philadelphia region.
