A rising number of black people are now seeking out professional advice from therapists to cope with emotional issues that were once thought taboo. I know what you're thinking, black folks don't need therapists as long as they have Jesus. For a rising number of African Americans simply trying to "pray it away" isn't working. It's about time we as a community start breaking the stigma of seeking professional help outside of the church for our personal issues.
What do you think are some of the main reasons why African Americans are reluctant to go to therapy and admit that they need help? How do we break the stereotypes associated with therapy and bring light to mental health in the community?
