One of the reasons I decided to become a psychologist was because I wanted to add more diverse voices to the field of psychology and to be able to address mental health concerns in African American and diverse families. For several years, I have been writing a blog on mental health and parenting. These posts serve as an avenue to reduce negative perceptions about therapy and to provide tips on recognizing mental health difficulties.
Below is video from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) that discusses mental health among African American.
