I hope you are enjoying your 4th Holiday, maybe not at work, like me.
July is Minority Mental Health Awareness month and I want to shine a light on mental health issues and what it looks like in the African American and other minority communities.
Below is a video I came across via one of my Facebook friends. It is a video by a popular YouTuber, La Guardia Cross, who I’ve only seen do funny videos chronicling his life as a first time dad with his daughters. In the video, he talks very candidly about his wife struggle with her mental health. Take a listen.
I admire him so much for sharing his experience as a husband and in hindsight seeing some things that he missed.
I know I’ve mentioned this organization (No More Martyrs) before but if you haven’t checked them out, please do so. https://www.nomoremartyrs.org/
I went to the first Minority Mental Health Summit 2 years ago and they heavily influenced me wanting to showcase Mental Health awareness on my blog.
What are you doing today to take care of yourself?
Until Next Time,
