Black BRAND in partnership with The Urban League of Hampton Roads and GEICO is proud to present Mental Health Matters, a virtual event featuring mental health experts to shed light on mental wellness.
A mental health crisis is mounting across the nation and especially within black and minority communities where stigma and access to care keep some from getting help. The stresses brought on by COVID-19 and an economic downturn is increasing job and insurance loss, food insecurity, and loss of housing. Anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and suicide are on the rise.
Learn about the stigma and data behind mental health wellness in minority communities, ask questions, and learn about services and resources in our community.
**THIS EVENT WILL BE BROADCAST LIVE ON THE BLACK BRAND FACEBOOK PAGE.
