Not On That Couch

When we begin to have honest and uncomfortable conversations regarding mental health we can heal individually and collectively. Until then mental health remains a taboo subject as I have commonly seen it in the black community. Until then we are left to guess and wonder about the matter much less normalize healing.

Black folks don’t like therapy

Nobody wants to admit

That we have issues

“Talking out loud to a stranger

Is for white folks

I’m okay with these meds

I got my liquor too”

When we begin to have honest and uncomfortable conversations regarding mental health, we can heal. Until then mental health remains a taboo subject as I have commonly seen it in the black community. Until then we are left to guess and wonder about the matter much less normalize healing.
