“With honesty, expertise, and a powerful approach to facilitating the subject of mental health and overall care for Black and other marginalized communities, Kelechi Ubozoh is a gift to the souls of those who benefit from an experience with her. Kelechi speaks to the heart of the matter and the heart of the individual as a teacher, a caregiver, an ally, and a Sister. California Black Women’s Health Project serves better because of what she brings to our Sister Circles. As a leader and one who seeks to uplift others, I am personally better as a result of Kelechi’s truthful and caring voice on mental health and wellness for Black women.”

“Ms. Ubozoh was able to produce a clear schedule, timeframe for the project, incorporate all the professional hands involved in the project and she executed each section before our agreed upon deadline while continuously checking in to make sure we were on the same page. I most appreciated her intentional desire to understand the project from the client’s perspective – she had to care about it as much as the client. Equally important from a Director’s perspective, I value time and efficiency. Ms. Ubozoh’s attention to detail mitigated having multiple drafts, her communication style and response time was professional and prompt.”

“Kelechi has a rich and varied set of life and professional experiences to draw upon and openly shares in her presentations. While facilitation group meetings both large and small, she helps participants to feel that the information being shared is credible thus building a sense of trust. With her skills, sensitivities and ability to carefully attune to the various group dynamics, it becomes very clear, at the outset, that everyone’s voice in the room is equal and no one is made to feel that they are ‘wrong.’ She is able to successfully facilitate the group’s emotions and with her positive approach and skillful facilitation she keeps groups energized and transformed from individuals to well-trained participants.”

“Kelechi Ubozoh delivered an impactful keynote address to the 46 participants in our virtual workshop on April 24, 2020. We learned about the importance of peers supporting mental health management from Ubozoh’s depth of experience working with communities managing mental health needs. Participants in our workshop came away from her keynote with these clear challenge areas to tackle for future digital mental health support resources.”

“We were so happy with the warmth, knowledge, and positive messaging Kelechi openly and confidently provided for our Mental Health assembly. Students resonated with her words and were actively engaged in a topic that is sometimes difficult to embrace. Her openness and vulnerability served as a healthy example for what recovery can look like. We’d love to have her back anytime!”

IDHA had the privilege of hosting Kelechi Ubozoh as a faculty member for our Crossroads of Crisis training series. Kelechi brings a rare (but essential) combination of lived experience, research, activism that contributed to a holistic learning experience for our audience of mental health providers, peers, and advocates. She is a skilled facilitator, weaving storytelling with theory and data in order to convey important truths about the state of our mental health system — and exactly what needs to change, and how. It was a joy to work with Kelechi to put together this training. She took great care to understand the goals we had for our audience, and developed a presentation that was met with rave reviews by all who attended.”

“Kelechi is a force of nature. She blends lived expertise, justice, and healing to bring change that unites people across identities to practically address mental health and suicide concerns in their communities.”

“Kelechi has become a trusted voice for us in both the mental wellness and cultural humility arenas. Whether she is holding a space for our BIPOC employees or sharing her knowledge and expertise with senior leaders, the authenticity she leads with allows others to come as they are–as learners, as advocates, as change-makers that are reimagining an equitable future.”
