Welcome to The Blue Dawn

Welcome to The Blue Dawn

Blue Dawn is a community initiative/support group working by values of community healing and a facilitator of accessible mental health services to Bahujans.

We connect Bahujan people in need of mental health counseling with counselors who understand the intersection of mental health and caste/minority issues, and with sponsors who can help make mental health counseling accessible to our community.

Please reach out to Blue Dawn, a care group for members of the community, if you want to talk, share, or even seek help. Contact: thebluedawn56@gmail.com
