Black Women's Mental Health: It Takes Courage to Ask for Help!

Depression can be as sneaky as a sucker punch; you often don't see it coming. A variety of circumstances put Black women at high risk for mental and emotional stress - economic insecurity, responsibilities of caregiving, neighborhood violence, lack of social support and physical illness or disability. As a result, many are plagued by tension, anxiety, worry and fear.

In addition, the daily struggles of coping with racism and sexism further exacerbate mental and emotional stress.
