Is Black male mental health being ignored?

About 150 people attended an event seeking community-wide solutions to improve mental health in young, Black males last Friday at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center. The event was a collaborative effort called “Black Male Mental Health Conference” in the series “Empowering the Village to Serve Black Male Youth.” Event coordinators said Friday’s conference was created to foster a community of professionals who are dedicated to improving the mental health of young, Black men.
