With our history and our trauma, African Americans DESERVE mental health treatment AND medication. We as a people need to stop acting like talking about mental health or seeking professional help is something we would be embarrassed or ashamed about. We do everything in our power to protect our families and friends. We take up a collection plate, start selling plates, have fish fries, make RIP shirts, for EVERY other situation. Black people collect money to put on someone's books when you know they were wrong, but we can't at least HEAR and LISTEN to someone who is depressed? Please, consider mental health when helping your loved ones.
