Mental Illness: The Most Ignored Pandemic Within Our Communities

It is no secret mental illness is often times kept secret within African American communities. I remember the first time I saw a black person talk about mental health on TV was when I was 16 years old. It happened during a stand up special on Comedy Central in which DL Hughley so eloquently and hysterically described an instance in which he approached his mother, frazzled and wild eyed, convinced he had multiple personalities disorder. She, completely unbothered, shrugged her shoulders, then…See More

With funding, their aim is that The Runaway…
