In this video I share some facts about suicide and mental health. We’re gona discuss why those numbers are like that and then i’m going to share some self care techniques. The statics show that majority of people who die by suicide are men and most of them are veterans. Veterans have PTSD. I’m going to discuss PTSD caused by racism – Racial trauma – and how this impacts black men’s mental health. I’m also going to discuss this idea that men are not supposed to talk about their feelings. Their emotions are seen as feminine…and why this can be harmful to black men. Towards the end of the video I’ll be sharing 3 self care techniques that I hope you will learn to incorporate into your lives. Self care needs to be a regular part of your routine.
