Dr. Sidney Hankerson of Columbia University joins us to discuss recognizing when depression is affecting your life and family. The recent death of Hip Hop manager Chris Lighty has caused the Black Community to take a pause and look at the recent rash of suicides by Black Men.

Dr. Sidney Hankerson is a psychiatrist who teaches at Columbia University and sees patients at the New York State Psychiatric Institute .  His work focuses on increasing access to mental health treatment for African Americans. Here he talks about his background and how he came to work in the mental health field. He also talks about how his work makes use of churches as important places where community members can get the information and care they need for mental health issues.
