About Us

The Family Peer Navigator was created with the mentality "for us, by us". We are a group that have come together to help connect with, inform, guide, and empower the Black community on matters around early psychosis and other mental health concerns. As a group we represent family members, community members and advocates, providers, and researchers. If you are interested in joining our efforts to improve pathways to care for Black and African American families, please contact us at
