Mental Health Pop-Up Gym

What is Teranga?

Teranga is a holistic approach to a no-cost counseling session we provide to individuals seeking mental health counseling. This term is coined by the Southern Center for Choice Theory which uses Choice Theory as a staple method. Teranga is a Wolof word for hospitality, and this is what participants experience when they engage in Teranga -. The traditions and beliefs of West African and Caribbean people inspire Teranga. The name Teranga means "warmth" and "heart" in Swahili – both words that reflect the warmth and support that participants receive during their time at Teranga. At MMHM it is a non-traditional therapy session where the person* participates in a sojourn* to wellness. This program consists of the following: 

  • Through the client match, we provide services for specific needs

  • This service is approximately $85+ in value but no cost to the individual

  • Counselors have compensated a fair wage

We believe mental health services are basic needs like food shelter and individuals should not be denied these needs because they can’t afford it.
