mx. j. nyla mcneill is psychological researcher and practitioner-healer who focuses on the health and wellness of gender-expansive people, creatives, and cultural workers. With health disparities making it difficult to access affirming, local care, their projects seek to connect culturally competent practitioners to address specific issues created by minoritization and marginalization. They are working toward holding in-person space for ongoing innovation in their community by organizing meetings of healers, practitioners, artists, and other visionionaries who are creating a more local, more accessible network of care. This funding supports the grassroots, action-based efforts of j. nyla mcneill’s DIY PhD in ecopsychologies, arts, and multicultural indigenous sciences.
