#Repost @blackfemaletherapists with @get_repost ・・・ An estimated 2.3 million Americans have bipolar disorder, also called manic-depressive illness. A person with bipolar disorder can go from feeling very, very high (called mania) to feeling very, very low (depression). . . . Several factors have contributed to African Americans not receiving help for bipolar disorder. Some of the reasons are: . . 📍Cultural barriers between many doctors and their patients . . 📍Reliance on family and religious community, rather than mental health professionals, during times of emotional distress . . 📍A mistrust of health professionals, based in part on historically higher than average institutionalization of African Americans with mental illness . . Have you noticed this in the community? . . . . . #blackmentalhealth #mentalhealthwarrior #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackgirlmagic #melaninrich #melaninlove #blackhealth #blackunity #blackgirlsbelike #melanated #blackgirlskillingit #bla#blacktherapist> #minoritymentalhealth #blacktherapist #blackfamilies #therapyforblackgirls #blackwellness #melaninqueen #blackfemaletherapists #blackcommunity

Anger. Sadness. Anxiety. Hurt.... Children are not born knowing how to handle such strong feelings. It is important for parents to teach our kids coping mechanisms to handle those big emotions! ❤️ . . . #TotalityKIDS #FoodFitnessFaith #FoodFaithFitnessKIDS #health #childmentalhealth #minoritymentalhealth #FFFKids #wellness #fitness #selfcare #mentalhealth #yoga #meditation #nutrition #pickyeater #blog #healthyfood #fruits #veggies #healthylifestyle #lifestyle #KIDTalk #SelfCareIsALifestyleAtANYAge
