Taraji P. Henson testified today at 9:30AM in front of the newly formed CBC Taskforce on Black Youth Suicide and Mental Health.

In the black community we usually turn towards our churches and pastors when it comes to mental health or we don’t deal with it at all. We usually get told to get mental toughness or forget about it when we are going through something in life.

The Taraji P. Henson opening statement on Emergency Taskforce on Black Youth Suicide and Mental lHealth:

“We, in the African American community, we don’t deal with mental health issues. We don’t even talk about it. We’ve been taught to pray our problems away.”

Thank you Taraji for using your platform to shed light on mental health.
