Black Britisn Women Encouraged to Speak out on Anxiety Disorders and Mental Health

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

As someone who has always a read a wide variety of newspapers and magazines, I was interested to pick up a copy of the African-Caribbean newspaper The Voice this week and see that the lead article was an appeal from the "Time to Change" Mental Health coalition for black women to speak out about their mental health experiences.  Nikki Llewellyn, speaking for the coalition, said that black British women were statistically more likely to experience anxiety disorders and mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders.  She said that "being a strong woman does not mean staying silent" and encouraged black women to get involved in campaigns to end stigma around mental health needs.  Nice to see The Voice newspaper putting such an important appeal on its front page.
