This month’s Sister’s @ 8 topic: Mental Health Awareness – Healing the Mind. Curing the Stigma.
We’ll discuss the barriers to care and how the sociopolitical issues (racism, discrimination, and sexism, low-income jobs) impact mental health.
Are wearing multiple hats, wearing you down? How does age factor in the types of care black women seek? Does guilt and shame play a factor? What are our belief systems about mental illness and what coping strategies work for our people? Let’s discuss. See you there!
