Scholarship Available: 

I have one full scholarship available for a counselor or therapist of color.  Addressing the diversity of the behavioral health workforce and deepening commitments to the advancement of mental health workers of color is a priority that I take seriously. The industry remains whiter than the state population as a whole. The US Census office estimates that in 2016 76% of Oregon’s population identifies as non-Hispanic white, thus the workforce for the behavioral health industry is 10% whiter than the state population as a whole.[ii] Nationally, approximately 90% mental/behavioral health professionals are non-Hispanic White while racial and ethnic minorities make up 39% of the U.S. population. [iii] These disparities are undoubtedly wider when considering clinical supervisors.

Direct action is required to address racial disparity and the impact of white supremacy within the mental health field. One means to do so is to remove financial barriers.

If you are a counselor or therapist of color who would like to take this supervision course, please email me: karen@karenhixsonlpc.com. Also let me know if you have a colleague you'd like to recommend for the scholarship.
