Did You Know?

According to the National Library of Medicine, African American women not only have significantly increased health risk with limited options for resources, but according to the National Institutes of Health, In 2017, young adults aged 78-25 years had the highest prevalence of mental illness followed by adults aged 26-49 years of age.

Why Is Minds Matter So Important?

Racism continues to have an impact on the mental health of Black/African Americans. Negative stereotypes and attitudes of rejection have decreased, but continue to occur with measurable, adverse consequences.

“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
