STATE OF BLACK MENTAL HEALTH

"This was so informative. I was proud to listen to black professionals in my field. I live in South Florida and although there is a large black Caribbean population here, there is very little representation.  I teach at a university in the area and I also place students in agencies in the community.  I have been encouraged by the conversation last night to advocate for my students and clients in the community.  I want to see more black clinicians in my community."

ABOUT OUR EVENT

A Courageous Conversation about Mental Health in The Black Community. This is a virtual panel discussion from leaders across the state of Florida. Recent data and trends are will be presented and reviewed. We bring to you input on causal factors and solutions through the lens of educators, therapists, lawyers, and peers with lived experience.

  • A 2021 report indicates from Feb to Sept 2020, the percentage of Black or African Americans reporting suicidal ideation increased from 29 percent to 38 percent

  • Rates of mental health among African Americans were high before COVID. 

  • Are more Black and African Americans having thoughts that they would be better off dead? 

  • Are we really "maintaining"?
