The mental health of black women and girls is important because of the transference of generational trauma as well as individual and societal challenges that can affect our mental health.

Thelma Matilda Alves Foundation is a mental health charity that is dedicated to preserving and protecting the mental and emotional wellbeing of women of African/Caribbean descent. 


We offer a range of services that centre women of African and Caribbean descent mental health and emotional wellbeing such as, group sessions, workshops and counselling sponsorship. 

Sessions and Workshops

Our sessions and workshops cover a range of topics about black womanhood and mental health.

Counselling sponsorship

We want to help more black women receive mental health support through private counselling. Counselling can be inaccessible for black women due to the costs, long NHS waiting lists and not being referred by their doctors. We want to remove these barriers by directly supporting black women and covering the costs of counselling.


Use our free online resources to help with anxiety, self-esteem and confidence.


Listen to our TMAF podcast to hear our chief executive officer and special guests talk about various topics.

Ways to get involved 


We believe that mental health and wellbeing care should be free and accessible. TMAF want to continue to deliver our services to the community. The fund will help us expand our services and make a lasting impact on the community.
