6LACK Covering Therapy Costs For Black Youth As Part Of Mental Health Campaign

The 'FREE 6LACK' crooner wants to "help create a support system for others to start their mental health journey."

6LACK scored the biggest hit of his career this year with his Lil Tjay-assisted “Calling My Phone,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 on its way to going platinum. But the East Atlanta Love Letter crooner is well aware the last couple of years haven’t been kind to everyone — especially people of color.

To coincide with Mental Health Day on Sunday (October 10), 6LACK announced a partnership with Mental Health America of Los Angeles and the global therapy service BetterHelp to provide mental health resources and information for Black communities.

As part of the initiative, 6LACK and BetterHelp are donating six months’ worth of therapy sessions to 50 BIPOC (black, indigenous, and other people of color) students in MHALA’s Transition-Age Youth Program, which helps young adults with mental health needs, as well as those who are homeless or on the brink of homelessness, integrate into society.

“The last few years have been pretty tough on the brain, heart, and spirit,” 6LACK wrote on Instagram on Monday (October 11), along with a video message announcing his mental health partnership. “I’m blessed enough to have access to mental health resources and a support system of friends and family, but I recognize that not everyone from my community is that fortunate.

“I wanted to do my part to help create a support system for others to start their mental health journey, and so I’ve partnered with MHALA & BetterHelp to help destigmatize the conversation, and provide resources to those who need it most
