What's good FAM. As requested by popular demand, today's show will be delving into the very prevalent issue of Mental Illness in the African-American communities. What are some of the first documented instances of mental illnesses in blacks and how might that have affected current views on treatment? Why are the occurences of mental illness so high in African Americans? Why are there so many individuals who refuse to get treatment, or who haven't even come to terms with the concept that they have a problem. Let's discuss it!! As always, bring your creativity to bless the mic. We will see you there.
