DR. CAROLYN TUCKER AND THE MENTAL HEALTH OF BLACK AMERICANS
It is a known fact that many African Americans deal with untreated mental health issues. This is the main reason Dr. Tucker started her project with the goal of eliminating the stigma around mental health therapy. Struggling with mental health issues alone has to change.
Dr. Tucker seeks to empower the community with the tools needs to take care of their mental health. The aim is to learn how to better deal with stress and to also make it easier for people of color to find treatment with facilities that have a diverse staff.
