Mental illness + African Americans + Teens = Suicide

Statistics are showing the numbers have increased daily.

There are many factors for this, such as poor diet, sleep issues and deprivation, not having access to therapists and counselors. Unfortunately, we will only see these numbers increase. Between the riots and protesting, the events taking place in today’s world, name changes of syrups and NFL teams, there’s so much evolving, so much is changing, so much is inconsistent. 

Something needs to happen and bring greater awareness of mental illness amongst African American teen girls. I’m excited to see what all build her a bridge can do, partnering with other organizations as well. We don’t want any teen to struggle because of the lack of resources, lack of access to things that should freely be given to them. 

Stay tuned …
