What is peer support?
It can depend on who is supporting. BlackAuDHD is an invitation to talk, process lived experiences, generate care plans, navigate conflict resolution, and ask for advice.
Who is Freedom? (all pronouns)
Freedom is a Black, trans genderfree, neuroexpansive cultural advocate and the founder of BlackAuDHD. They believe our futures of care will and deserve to exist beyond systems and institutions of oppression. Click here to learn more about their values and experiences.
Am I eligible for support?
If you answer 'yes' to all 3 of these questions, you are eligible for no-cost 1:1 support:
1) Are you Black, indigenous, or otherwise a part of the global majority?
2) Are you queer, trans, or nonbinary?
3) Are you *neuroexpansive/divergent or disabled?
*The term Neuroexpansive is specifically for Black disabled people
How do we meet?
Online via Zoom. Video is optional for all participants (including Freedom) and sessions most often resemble a phone call. Live transcriptions are available.
Do I have to communicate with my voice?
Non-spoken communication is welcomed. You are welcome to use chat, AAC, or assistive technology during the session.
What are Freedom's boundaries?
I value mutuality and peer relationships where 'no' is mutually accepted. I do not feel comfortable listening to graphic specifics regarding SA or physical abuse. Individuals are welcome to request up to one session per week. While it is rare, I reserve the right to refuse services.
How do I schedule?
Freedom is not accepting new peer support participants at this time. If you are an organization, provider, practitioner, etc. interested in consulting, click here.
