This is a VERY IMPORTANT video…. I hope you will watch it; this Black man tells his story, he was diagnosed with Major Depression, Trauma, …. please, please help stop the stigma in the Black community…and please listen to this man who is so brave to get up and share his story…
There is no shame in mental illness. It usually stems from trauma, and it can lead to physical illnesses that can and do kill like heart disease, high blood pressure and more.
For now, please listen… Or check out his program, HERE, where he is teaching barbers to be mental health advocates as well as helping them to connect with therapists to assist these Black men who need some help, even further, he is seeking and working to help Black children and women; the family system, in the Black community… His projects and ideas are so on point; I hope you will listen…
The past few years I’ve been doing noting but studying, however, to convey and share that with anyone via blog or video was somehow too much. I am in a position in life that has left me lost, but I won’t go on about that. I have decided it’s time I do what I know I am here to do, and so…
There will be some changes to my YouTube page, and in the following video I cover that, I also talk about the American Psychiatric Association and their admission to systematic racism that cost us research which could have potentially helped saved Black children under the age of 10 who are attempting and also succeeding suicide.
They have made a pledge; the link is in the description in the video.
Thank you guys for staying, I hopefully am going to do better this time. YOUR FEED BACK HELPS; good or bad… Please feel free to message me, email me or comment. My email is email@example.com
“Teach them about their marvelous history and watch what happens… Teach them and tell them, I tell them, your people have done wonderful things and that you too can do wonderful things. The moment they realize that their people have done something is the moment they realize that they can do something.”
This is a powerful, strong talk on the a tragic truth that can change the future. . . That can change and help the mental health of the children… Everyone needs to see this video. It’s amazing how obvious so much of what he says is yet, the lack of how often this happens is heart breaking.
Be part of the change. This is not “by chance” that these children can barely read, let alone want to learn… We need Black pride; we need a revolution even in the educational system…
We can all change the world, if we all try. The level of deprivation of knowledge, the lack of funding given to predominately Black communities school. This isn’t equality. It’s time to change; it’s time to make Black children proud of where they come from, just as they should be, and children of all color should be learning this as well because learning lies is brainwashing and heartbreaking.
The importance of Black history is crucial; the accuracy of this history is even more crucial. Black history should be given the same amount of time, depth and attention as white European history… This is obvious.
But the link between the lack of Black history and the predominance of mental health issues is far deeper than we are acknowledging. The power of our ancestors, of all the things that have been done before us, have been uninterrupted as the people untied and stood up against the hate. The power in the Black and African communities when united, within the community alone let alone in this world, needs to not only be remembered, but shared and celebrated; and emulate the strengths and finally get credit for the contributions made but never paid for by acknowledgment or money.
It’s time we start focusing more on history, real history, not only for our sake but for the children.
As I prepare for my first release of heartbreaking information, hidden information it would seem, regarding health care and the Black community; children, to make it even worse, I figured I need to maintain a balance on my page for within the community, be it historical or present day, there is something amazing and empowering about what can be done when the community unites…
I feel it is just as important to highlight the tragedies going on, as well as acknowledge the buried history of Black men and women in America (as well as outside of America, but I’m trying to stay on topic.) I’ll be posting random positive posts such as this on and off as we go through the mental health crisis and more, for it is important never to forget…In fact, to KNOW or REMEMBER… They didn’t teach this in school for a reason, and as KRS-One asked, “WHY IS THAT?”
