According to the U. S. Office of Minority Health, women in general are at least twice as likely to experience an episode of major depression as men. And, compared to their Caucasian counterparts, African-American women are only half as likely to seek help. Conversations about mental health concerns remain somewhat taboo in the black community. As a result, too often women of color try to muscle their way through depression and anxiety on their own, often leading to 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 about mental health for African-American women with Cha’Ke’Sha Spencer (Licensed Professional Counselor, Grace Anthony Counseling, LLC), Shannen-Rose Forde (Augusta University Student-Athlete), and Ashley Johnson & Kyuante Jenkins (Richmont Graduate University, Masters-Level Counselors).
