Q&A on Black Mental Health with Psychotherapist, Christian Howard
What are some of the biggest stigmas facing mental health in the Black community?
I think that we don’t talk about it. Mental health and going to your therapist are considered a white thing. In the church, you are taught to pray it out. I know in the islands and parts of Africa if you have a mental health disorder, people think you are possessed, and you should be thrown away. If we as black people communicated in a healthier way and had more open communication, I think we as a people could heal. We could all have healthier relationships in our family structure.
