BLACK ENTERPRISE Crafted A Go-To Guide For Mental Health Resources

Health and Wellness

by Dana Givens

It’s OK to ask for help.

Mental health has long carried a stigma in the Black community that has prevented many from seeking medical treatment.

May is Mental Health Awareness month and BLACK ENTERPRISE is raising awareness for our community. Black Americans are more likely to experience trauma from racial encounters more than other ethnic groups. It is time to fight against the stigma by creating more safe spaces for those suffering to share their experiences. In light of the recent string of Black deaths by the hands of police officers—which have sparked nationwide protests in the midst of a deadly pandemic—it is imperative now more and than ever to take care of your mental health needs.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from mental health-related issues, please contact one of the organizations below for more guidance on how to seek out treatment.
