Dismantling Mental Health Barriers in the African American Community
Updated: Oct 13, 2021
Welcome to the third video of our Helpful Tips series from our providers here at Walter's Walk! These helpful videos will feature mental health tips, time management tips and much more. This video features our licensed professional counselor (LPC) Shala Taylor, exploring the effects of mental health challenges in the African American community and how to break down those barriers. We believe it is a wonderful conversation to have about mental health and how to begin to heal as a community. She discusses how mental health being a priority has been stigmatized the past, but how it is important for your children and your community to heal your anxiety or depression. As Shala says in this video, "you have to know better to do better."
