In an age where we can swipe for pretty much anything, finding a therapist shouldn't be that hard, right?
But when you come from a traditionally muted or marginalized community, our journey can be even more stigmatized, making it more challenging to start. We're unmuting conversations about mental health care making it easier for you to connect to the right therapist
Muted communities are ones which, often culturally or economically, have been kept silent in mental health conversations. These groups, unsurprisingly, are also at the highest risk for marginalization and systemic oppression in many other areas.
We believe everyone deserves quality mental health services, and we focus strongly on matching seekers in the following communities:
First and Second Generation Immigrants
Alternative family structures/Polyamory
For more information on mental healthcare for these communities, see our Resources page.
Meet Unmute's TheraBuddies
Real Humans. Real Stories. Keeping it Real.
Therabuddies are everyday people, many with lived experience in muted communities (immigrants, BIPOC, LGBTQ+). We've experienced the challenges of finding the right therapist and want to help make it easier for you!
We offer guidance throughout your therapy journey: providing therapist matches, helping you choose the right therapist, and sharing tips to make the most out of your therapy experience.
There are no embarrassing or weird questions to ask us, because we've been there too. Let’s unmute together.
