The Communiversity explores culture, politics and the kinship between acedemia and the community. For the 19th, Communiversity will feature local community leaders and community members discussing Black History Month.
A discussion of the mental health disparities in the African American community. African Americans die by suicide at an increasing rate each year; they are incarcerated rather than hospitalized; misdiagnosed and under-diagnosed, homeless, and jobless, just to name a few. This 1 hour program will discuss the disparities, mental health myths, stigmas in the African American community and provide resource information. Hosted by African American Outreach Director for NAMI Minnesota, Matthea Little Smith.
