The Masai Warriors of Kenya and Tanzania greet each other with the words “and how are the children?” It is an homage to the wellbeing of the children. The response is “all the children are well”, meaning that life is good. Our children are the barometer for understanding our present and future. The Black Mental Health Alliance believes that it is our duty to work towards a day in which the response is “All the Children are Well”. This programming fits into the greater mission and vision of the organization is to develop, promote and sponsor trusted culturally-relevant educational forums, training and referral services that support the health and well-being of Black people and other vulnerable communities. For our children, we provide programming that fits into 4 categories: advocacy, literacy, partnership, and education as it relates to mental health. How can you get involved?Join the BMHA Social Media Community https://www.facebook.com/blackmindsmatter1 , subscribe on YouTube at Black Mental Health Alliance, and follow us on Instagram at @black_minds_matter_ and @youngblkmindsmatter. BMHA membership offers an opportunity to connect with a premiere mental health organization of clinicians, educators, researchers and change agents all focused on emotional healing and whole health for the global Black community.

As we prepare to exit Mental Health Awareness Month and enter Men’s Health Month, the month takes on an entirely different meaning for black men and boys.  Black men have the lowest health status and lowest life expectancy of any demographic. 60% of Black men are more likely to die from stroke than non-hispanic and white men, 75% of Black men are less likely to have health insurance than white men. It is no secret that for years structural forces have been in place to the detriment of the health and well-being of Black men. Social conditions like racism, segregation, stress, incarceration affect a high proportion of Black men's health. Being a black man is a high risk factor!  While the month of June seeks to heighten the awareness of preventable health issues and inspire early detection and treatment of diseases among men and boys, Black men and boys need more.  Sadly, the startling statistics paints a bleak picture about the hard truth trajectory of black men and boys.  Strength needs support is a template for wholeness and healing among men and boys in the Black community. It could be the answer to the clarion call to reduce isolation and support long-term engagements in communities and build an eco-system unique to sustaining the tribe of black men and boys.  Our Guests:Richard Rowe, MPHOrin Howard, LCSW-CDr. Bruce PurnellMujahid MuhammadHow can you get involved?Join the BMHA Social Media Community https://www.facebook.com/blackmindsmatter1 , subscribe on YouTube at Black Mental Health Alliance, and follow us on instagram at @bmhaofficial and @youngblkmindsmatter.BMHA membership offers an opportunity to connect with a premiere mental health organization of clinicians, educators, researchers and change agents all focused on emotional healing and whole health for the global Black community.

Ep. 8: She Bipolar

Ep. 8: She Bipolar

2022-01-0947:21

Bipolar Disorder. A mental illness that causes people to have episodes of mania and depression. All too often a term thrown around in the Black Community...what’s wrong with Aunt Jackie? Oh you know she bipolar! Meaning that she’s moody, unpredictable, toxic, or chaotic. We are here today for the Sistahs. We are alright. Our mental health is impacted by so many factors- body image, imposter syndrome, physical appearance, etc. Our emotional responses have been labeled long enough, and it’s up to us to In the Spirit of Auntie Maxine...reclaim our time, and tell the world who we are before they even attempt to define us. Dr. Rheeda Walker Bio:Dr. Rheeda Walker is an award-winning Professor of psychology, a fellow in the American Psychological Association, and a leading scholar who has published more than 60 scientific papers on African American mental health, suicide risk, and emotional resilience. She is also a licensed clinical psychologist who prepares doctoral students for independent careers. Dr. Walker's impact has expanded beyond academia and she has quickly become a fan favorite with the release of her first book, The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health. Delving into the heart of the Black experience, Dr. Walker debunks myths about mental health, builds the case for psychological fortitude, and delivers practical advice for use in everyday life. Her charismatic vision and practical approach to life’s challenges has led to numerous appearances on Good Morning America, The Breakfast Club, and NPR, among others. She is often quoted in major publications like the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Huffington Post, GQ Magazine, and the Houston Chronicle. Dr. Walker’s eclectic mix of experiences positions her well to bring culturally-meaningful insight and emotional health tools to audiences in the U.S. and around the world.Dr. Afiya MbilishakaBeing in love with hair her whole life, Dr. Afiya grew up as her family’s hairstylist, graduating from lawn chairs at cookouts to eventually holding space in her college dorm room for a mini-salon.

At the age of 26, Dr. Afiya earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and was a full time therapist at Columbia University and then she was a professor at the University of the District of Columbia.

Politics can often be guided by ethics drawn from religion. December’s episode of Real Talk: Black Minds Matter is entitled Your Righteous and Political Black Mind. Religion influences what political party many stand by and what political viewpoints they agree with based on their religious upbringing. There is a power within the church that can shift the narrative of politics for many Black people and also guide them in their times of darkness. Our Co-hosts Andrea Brown and Nia Jones are joined by Rev. Brenda D. White and will discuss the role religion plays in politics and the REAL impact that religious leaders have on the righteous and political Black mind! Links/Information discussed in this episode:Paula White ( Trump's Spiritual Advisor) message: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-election-2020/us-election-trump-paula-white-house-prayer-b1616014.html How can you get involved?Join the BMHA Social Media Community https://www.facebook.com/blackmindsmatter1 , subscribe on YouTube at Black Mental Health Alliance, and follow us on instagram at @black_minds_matter_ and @youngblkmindsmatterBMHA membership offers an opportunity to connect with a premiere mental health organization of clinicians, educators, researchers and change agents all focused on emotional healing and whole health for the global Black community.

Oh Black Church...Where art thou? is November’s podcast for Real Talk: Black Minds Matter. Historically, our churches have been the cornerstone of the black community for everything from the civil rights movement to public health awareness (i.e. Red Dress Sunday). It has been said that black people are more likely to look to their Pastor for advice, counseling, and political commentary as it relates to these challenging times. Our Co-hosts Andrea Brown and Nia Jones are joined by Rev. Bryce Jones, Co-Pastor and BMHA Chaplain. This episode discusses the importance of collaboration and the absence of such  between mental health professionals and spiritual leaders as we understand the REAL strengths and limitations of the faith community as it relates to Black mental health.Links/Information discussed in this episode:Hood Feminism (Book):https://www.amazon.com/Hood-Feminism-Notes-Movement-Forgot/dp/0525560548 Reading While Black (Book):https://www.amazon.com/Reading-While-Black-American-Interpretation/dp/083085486X How can you get involved?Join the BMHA Social Media Community https://www.facebook.com/blackmindsmatter1 , subscribe on YouTube at Black Mental Health Alliance, and follow us on Instagram at @black_minds_matter_ and @youngblkmindsmatterBMHA membership offers an opportunity to connect with a premiere mental health organization of clinicians, educators, researchers and change agents all focused on emotional healing and whole health for the global Black community.
