Courageous Conversations- African American Men and Mental Health

Mar 30, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Mar 30, 2019 3:30pm


Description

Every year, more than 40 million Americans struggle with mental illness. African American men are as likely as anyone else to have mental illness and more likely to not seek help. Depression and other mental illnesses can be deadly if left untreated. Suicide is a leading cause of death among African Americans ages 15 to 24. Untreated and misdiagnosed mental illness can also make African American men more vulnerable to substance abuse, homelessness, incarceration, and homicide.
