Dedicated to Promoting Black Mental Health
At BlackMentalHealthNet.com, we appreciate the strengths of the Black community. We also acknowledge its unique challenges in matters of mental health.
Untreated or undertreated mental illness can be limiting, disabling and even life threatening. Furthermore, the current economic, legal, and educational environments leave little room for error: without mental health, progress is fragile, and hurdles can become impassable obstacles.
The Black community’s traditional reluctance to discuss mental health and illness comes with much too high a cost. On our site you will find informative articles and videos about mental illness and treatment as well as educational content about strategies for mental illness prevention, mental health promotion and positive coping.
We want to give you the information and encouragement you need to feel empowered to be change agents of change in your own lives, in the lives of loved ones, and in your communities.
