CHANGE MUST BEGIN NOW
A Community All Too Often Overlooked
Black mothers should not be statistics
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
Black Mothers in the U.S. are dying at 3 to
4 times the rate of White Mothers.
Black Americans are 20% more likely
to report serious psychological distress than White Americans, but are less likely to use mental health services.
11.5% of Black adults
in the U.S. had NO form of health insurance.
Increasing rates of mental health issues and lack of qualified therapists (shortage of 250k clinicians by 2025 – U.S. Department of Health andHuman Services) negatively impacts Black Americans.
