Huge demand is leading to burnout for BIPOC therapists.

Oct 12 2022

Huge demand is leading to burnout for BIPOC therapists. BIPOC therapists and social workers are already a small group, far outnumbered by White people in these fields. But BIPOC patients often seek out therapists who share their racial and ethnic backgrounds to avoid issues like having to educate on culture, code switching, and microaggressions. During the pandemic, the demand for BIPOC therapists has increased, in the wake of events like hate crimes against Asian Americans and George Floyd’s death. But this intensified need for therapists of color has created enormous burnout for the small number trying to meet the needs of their communities, and according to BIPOC therapists, their peers are leaving the profession “in droves.” According to YPulse’s mental health survey, 65% of BIPOC young people are interested in speaking one-on-one with someone about their mental health.
