CW: I am a community consultant with a background in mental health (child and adult) and homelessness.

STMS: What inspired you to take part in this event when so many in the Black community seek to stay in the shadows with their diagnosis?

CW: Mental Health in the black community is often avoided and swept under the rug.

I am an advocate for eliminating this stigma and encourage Blacks to seek services to improve their quality of life when needed.
