Step Up For Mental Health’s podcast kicks off with The Minority Report series. The first topic of the series will address “Racial Tension in the News” with special guest Dr. Amber Thornton. We had an interesting discussion and touched on issues in the news impacting people of color and some of the challenges families are facing regarding mental health.
Please listen to the podcast and join the debate. Share your comments on how families can start a meaningful dialogue about how people of color and other minorities are touched by mental health issues in our society. You can also take the discussion to Facebook and Twitter with #MinorityReportSeries.
