The stigma associated with mental illness, especially in the black community, often serves as a barrier to those who need to be treated for mental illness related issues.
Eliminating that stigma was the focus of a town hall discussion held Thursday evening at the University of Florida Health Street building off Archer Road as part of National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. Sponsored by HealthStreet’s Our Community, Our Health program, the discussion primarily dealt with mental health issues facing the black community.
