One in four women are likely to suffer from depression at some time during their lives, yet the associated mental health stigmas, lack of insurance and distrust of the health care system make it more difficult for Black women to seek help. These are their stories and love lessons for the next generation.

Join the Inclusive Reading Club in reading selections from "Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We’re Not Hurting" by Terrie M. Williams and "Black Women’s Mental Health: Balancing Strength and Vulnerability," edited by Stephanie Y. Evans, Kanika Bell and Nsenga K. Burton.

Participants may attend in-person or remotely. Sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Programs and McKillop Library.
