If you’re in Charlotte, North Carolina mark your calendars for March 25th to attend “Just Heal, Bro”. The National Black Male Mental Health Tour will be here March 25, 2022 beginning at 7:30pm. You’re invited to a safe, “male-only” space where men of all walks of life will converge on an emotional and mental healing journey together. This event will foster a supportive and healing experience. It’s going to be real talk, clinical dialogue and connections with influential Black men. Shout out to the local Black therapists that will be on site with various resources. Meet us at the Sarah Belk Gambrell Center for the Arts and Civic Engagement, located at 2319 Wellesley Avenue, Charlotte, North Carolina. Need to know more, click here.
Keep up with JustHeal.co movers and shakers. I’m so proud of this organization because they’re addressing important issues. America has been using mental health soundbites for years, but this group is actually addressing it with resources and information. Did you know that suicide is the third leading cause of death in Black adolescents ages 15-19 and second leading cause of death ages 10-14? But there’s more startling statistics. African American adults are 20% more likely to experience mental health issues than the rest of the population. Suicides amongst Black men have doubled in the past two years. Lastly, 95% of people of color will end therapy prematurely because of the cultural divide with their therapist.
