Black Myeloma Health Community Chapter
event May 25, 2023 / 02:00PM - 03:00PM EDT

Event Description

In the Black community, mental illness is seen as a cultural taboo. Studies show that the community is more inclined to say that mental illness is associated with shame and embarrassment. Individuals and families are also more likely to hide the illness and refer to it as an unfortunate affliction. As Black people, we are often taught to keep our feelings to ourselves. Going to therapy is viewed as a sign of weakness and something to be ashamed of. Join us for a candid conversation on mental illness and learn how to break some of the stigmas and remove barriers so we can confidently get help when needed.
