Mental Health

Sponsoring and promoting legislation to ensure that mental health resources and services are expanded in Black Communities by:
  • Addressing the disparities in our healthcare system as it pertains to mental health care services
  • Supporting legislation to address mental health and increase funding for quality mental healthcare through the state.
  • Partnering with African-American therapists to bring services directly to young African-Americans
  •  Focusing on the work of mental health advocates that work to end the stigma associated with mental health illnesses and treatment.
