Mental Health Awareness and Lack of Health Coverage
In general, over 20% of the African-American population do not have health coverage. And this is largely attributed to their low-income or low socioeconomic status. A public health professor cited that poverty and poor health are directly correlated. This is because they have fewer or no resources at all to get health coverage for themselves and their family.
This is why mental health awareness is so important in the African-American community, instead they misunderstand what it is and are unable to seek the help they need. Most either don’t want to talk about it, or don’t believe it exist.
