Stories that Heal

Hey everyone.  I had insomnia one night and I stumbled upon a a public service announcement for this great program called Stories that Heal.

Terrie Williams
As many of you may know, mental illness is very stigmatized in the African American community. This is a campaign led by Terrie Williams by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA) to reduce that stigma in the African American Community. Click on the faces to hear these inspiring stories: Stories that Heal

Terrie also wrote a book Black Pain: It just looks like we're not hurting about depression in the African American Community.

Have a healthy day folks!
