Roommates, today is #WorldMentalHealthDay and in an effort to continue to erase the stigma of mental health, especially within the black community, we want to not only acknowledge the day, but also shed light on some very famous faces who also suffer…to show those of you who may be struggling that you’re definitely not alone.
Always remember that struggling with mental health is nothing be ashamed of—and if you feel like you need support, don’t hesitate to reach out to friends, family or a professional. If you need help feel free to visit MentalHealthLine.org. #MentalHealthAwarenessDay
