According to a Surgeon General report, African Americans are over-represented in populations that are particularly at risk for mental illness. However, because of the stigma associated with mental illness most African Americans will not seek professional help. Thousands of African Americans suffer in silence as they face mental illness alone.

Dr. Merlyn Blackwood, a mental health professional and Certified Christian Counselor, joins the No Antics team to discuss why Black America is anti-mental health, to diffuse the myths and to offer a light of hope to those who are suffering in silence. Tune in to No Antics at 10 p.m. EST on Thursday, January 8th. Call the No Antics Hotline at 646-649-0018 to share your comments. Live chat will also be available! Real People - Real Life - Real Talk
