The story of Kasamahan started in 2020 in Illinois during the first pandemic lockdown. When Maria Cristina Castro started working with Filipino clients in a non-Filipino group practice, she was inspired to reach out to other Filipino mental health professionals in the area for community and support.

 

Today, Kasamahan is a decolonizing non-profit that provides a heart centered space for Filipino/a/x mental health professionals all over the United States to connect and find belonging through their lived experiences as Filipinos working with both Filipino and non-Filipino clients and communities.

Our Story

Our Mission and Purpose

The purpose of Kasamahan is to provide enrichment and growth to Filipino/a/x mental health professionals by understanding the roots, identity and culture of the Filipino community as it relates to mental health. 

 

We aim to shift awareness back to the lived experience of the "souls" of our feet, thus bringing about a sense of belonging and enrichment to the larger Filipino community. We strive to execute its mission by listening through the "ears of our hearts" and by mindfully integrating the history, values, and hopes of our fellow Filipino/a/x.

 

We seek to provide multi-dimensional mental health resources and support to the Filipino/a/x community and those who serve them.
