Speaks Out About Black Trauma

“Self-Care In Times of Black Trauma”
With the recent deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police officers, the Dallas shootings, and the growing racial divide within the country, it’s more important than ever for our communities to care for our mental health.
According to Mental Health Advocate Terrie M. Williams, “To begin the healing process, we must be honest and candid in our discussions about race relations in America. We, as a nation, MUST begin to peel off our layers. People of color are TRAUMATIZED AND FLATLINING…spiritually, mentally and emotionally. We can’t afford to remain silent. Together, we must share our journey in order to facilitate healing. We have the power to make a difference and change the hearts and minds of the indifferent.
Terrie and other notable opinion-makers came together to discuss the psychological impact of police shootings on African Americans and the need to practice self care.
