^^^^ And the title of the book again Soror Lani! (Please )
Can someone on the panel please address how can we define mental illness and manage it through the kaleidoscope of black culture, black history and the medical community, black existence both within our local communities and globally.... in other words can we really talk... what is mental health in our black and brown communities... how do we really have a culturally centered approach in addressing mental health for our black and brown communities?
I am from a culture where you deal with your own problem. Being vulnerable is considered a personal fault. Get up on your feet and deal with your challenges. Seeking therapy is considered a sign of weakness. This is not something you share with friends with friends and family…like I am taking cycling classes once a week. Seeking mental health becomes a sense of shame. What do you recommend?
Please take a minute to fill out this very quick survey on this panel discussion. Thanks!
