STMS: What do you do for a living?

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. We have dealt with many generational curses and stereotypes and limited quality of care due to our environment and surroundings. I am an advocate for eliminating this stigma and encourage Blacks to seek services to improve their quality of life when needed.
