Is prayer the answer?

Mental illness, specifically chronic depression hits the black community more often than any other group, but black Americans are much less likely to seek out professional help. Why does this continue to be taboo?
The American Psychiatric Association further states Culturally diverse groups often bare a disproportionately high burden of disability resulting from mental disorders. This disparity does not stem from a greater prevalence rate or severity of illness in African Americans, but from a lack of culturally competent care, and receiving less or poor quality care.
For some disorders, such as schizophrenia and mood disorders, there is a high probability of misdiagnosis because of differences in how African-Americans express symptoms of emotional distress.
All in all, we have a serious problem with mental illness in the black community and our hope through this conversation is to begin a much needed dialogue in hopes of debunking mental illness myths.
Please join Vida Starr & Emelyne Thursday 5:00PM PST/7:00PM CST/8:00 EST as they discuss domestic violence in the black community. There will be a panel of women discussing this extremely important topic along with paying homage to someone we knew who just lost her life to domestic violence.
A very near and dear friend was killed last night by her husband in a murder-suicide. Angelina was a good woman and good mother whose life was cut brutally short, but we want to help her three orphaned children however we can. All of the money raised will go towards the children's educations. A donation of any amount or simply spreading the word is invaluable. Thank you. ~Emelyne
This is part two of a series.The scandal involving Bill Cosby and the rape allegations, is a major topic on the web as of late. The responses have ranged from full support of him, to people wanting his head on a stake. However what is often overlooked is the impact that these discussions are having on the victims of rape and how the ridiculing of the women involved, is ultimately going to prevent even more rape victims from telling what happened to them. The black community has a variety of views and a major one is why the women didn't come forward sooner. In fact, many have gone so far as to saying that the women involved in these allegations are all involved in some grand media conspiracy to "bring the black man down". We will discuss and explore the many aspects of this case, the responses from the black community and the historical norms behind those responses. Please feel free to call in and share your views and remember to follow Progressive Black Thinkers Radio by clicking on the tab.

WHY IS COUNSELING, ESPECIALLY GRIEF SUCH A TABOO IN THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND MINORITY COMMUNITY?
Have you stopped to ponder as to why African-Americans and other minorities do not embrace or reach out for professional counseling after dramatic experiences? Is it because we rely more on our faith in God to heal our hearts, and channel our emotions into places that are happier? Or, it is because we simply lack the directions of where to turn other than our faith? Join me and Dr. Michelle Joy Brown, PhD, MSW, LPC as we examine and discuss the issue of an almost non-existent culture of professional counseling in the black community.
