Tuesday, May 24, 5:30-8pm, Columbus Metropolitan Library [Main Branch], 96 S. Grant Ave.

As a collective, Black people are amid multiple public health emergencies, from gun violence, and increasing rates of drug overdose deaths involving fentanyl, to the systemic inequities within our healthcare system.

Tragically, these and other factors result in people with serious mental illness dying anywhere from 10 to 25 years earlier than the general population.

Join the Columbus African Council and other community leaders as we continue our conversation on mental health in the Black community, discuss how we can work together to break down systemic barriers, and develop strategies to make prevention, and treatment, and recovery supports a priority in the African Diaspora.

Hosted by Columbus African Council.
