540WMain Community Learning Academy presents:
Mental Health Disparities in the Black Community
Wednesday February 14 // 7-9 PM
It’s America’s worst kept secret that Blacks experience more severe forms of mental health conditions due to unmet needs and other barriers.
According to the Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, African Americans are 20% more likely to experience serious mental health problems than the general population.
- Why is this the case?
What are some of the most common mental health disorders among African Americans?
What other mental health disparities exist in the black community and what can we do to change the statistics?
How can we begin to heal and erase the stigma associated with mental health in the black community?
Join us for a candid community discussion moderated by founder Calvin Eaton and a very special guest (soon to be announced)
Open to all (15+) but tailored for black and brown community members // $8/person, advanced registration required as seating is limited.
Seat will be held 15 minutes after start of class.
