“Mental Health and Wellness is Necessary”
Did you know that in 2019, suicide was the second leading cause of death among Blacks or African Americans who were between the ages of 15-24? (hhs.gov) That is a fact that needs to be taken into consideration. Mental health and wellness is not something that is always talked about in the Black or African American community, however it is something that needs to be destigmatized. You matter and your mental health matters. It’s okay not to be okay and there is help. Therapy is just a safe space for you to be able to talk about your feelings, challenges, and emotions and be transparent and get the help, support, and guidance that you need to process those today! Don’t wait, however choose you and make your mental and health and wellness a priority.
