Call in to speak with the host
One in four individuals will experience a mental health condition during his or her lifetime, however, studies show that only half of African American adults who experience a mental health condition seek treatment. Stigma, limited access to services, limited availability of services in certain areas, fear, hopelessness, mistrust of the health system, and lack of financial resources all create treatment barriers for many African Americans. To give us information on where to find help and what to expect once you get help, my guests are mental health experts, Antoinette Gomez and Jane Porter-Cox.
It's good to talk.
