Our first Changing History event went so well that we are having another!
We want to start the conversation about something that has historically not been talked about in black communities- mental health. It’s time we begin to speak out about the mental health disparities faced by our local black community in order to create a safer, more supportive environment for those that follow.
Silence creates shame and discourages help seeking. Let’s break the silence and talk about cultural and systematic barriers that exist. Join us for an event of cultural education, breaking stigma, and conversation. We, along with our panel of speakers (to be announced soon!), encourage you to open your hearts and ears to what is experienced and to then join the conversation in a Q&A.
Please RSVP to OUCAssistant@mhacf.org.
