The conversation surrounding Black men and mental health is scarce. Although times are changing and more people are starting to engage and recognize that mental health is as important as physical health, Black men are often left out of the conversation. Depression, anxiety, past trauma, suicidal thoughts, all contribute to failing mental health that we choose to suppress. Generational teachings have taught us that we should not cry, show emotion, and to always be strong. Those teachings led many of us to believe in the “Man up” logic.
