Black Mental Health and Wellness Community Dialogue – NAMI Atlanta/Auburn & Auburn Avenue Research Library
NAMI Atlanta/Auburn & Auburn Avenue Research Library Presents: “Black Mental Health and Wellness: Community Dialogue” July 28, 2019
Come join us for a robust discussion about mental health issues impacting the black community.
In the black community, there is a negative stigma surrounding mental health. Instead of seeking professional help for conditions such as depression and anxiety, many in the community resort to self-medication (drugs, opioids, alcohol, etc.) or isolation in an attempt to solve their problems on their own. This issue of masking pain is especially prevalent amongst black men.
