suffering in silence.

I’m going to share a story that is extremely personal to me. Something that only few know and even less truly understand.




let’s talk about it: mental health in the Black community


It is no secret that mental health is often dismissed and ignored by the Black community.

“Depression is for White people.” “Just pray about it.” “There are people who have it much worse that you do.” and the worst one, “Just think happy thoughts! :)” are all phrases that individuals struggling with anxiety, depression and other mental health problems are all extremely tired of hearing. The truth of the matter is the stigma and refusal to talk about mental illness in the Black community is taking lives and preventing our loved ones from getting the treatment they need.
