According to the U. S. Office of Minority Health , 1 in 5 adult black males is likely to report psychological difficulty….yet conversations about the effects of mental health concerns remain somewhat taboo in the black community.  Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness…medical, biological brain conditions that cause changes in how we think … and feel …and in our mood. These changes can alter our lives, making it hard to relate to others and function in ways that are effective for daily living. And so to be fully healthy, we must make a focus on mental wellness an important part of our lives. Join Dr. Sutherland as she talks with Tyson Fant (Richmont Graduate University’s Director of Admissions), Jeremy Skeete (Student Pastor at New Season Church), and Reuben Lawrence (Mental Health Counselor with Lawrence & Lawrence Consultants Inc), about mental health for African-American men in the black community.
