NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since the launch of their Black Health Facts resource center on June 19, 2020, Everyday Health has made it their mission to raise awareness of inequities in health and healthcare among Black Americans. This year, the focus is on mental health in the Black community. A video series featuring Dr. Harris, Black Health Facts: Highlighting the Issues and Influencing Change, looks at how stigma associated with mental health issues, mistrust in the healthcare system, the concept of the strong Black woman, and more have impacted Black Americans’ physical and mental health and compromised their well-being.
The video series includes:
Episode 1: How Does Stigma Associated With Mental Health Impact Black Americans?
Episode 2: Why Is Trust Critical to Improve Black Americans’ Health?
Episode 3: How Can I Find a Mental Health Professional Who Is a Good Fit for Me?
Episode 4: How Can Self-Care Improve Our Overall Health?
Episode 5: How Can the Pressure to Be a Strong Black Woman Harm Health?
Episode 6: How Is the Healthcare System Failing Black Women?
The series culminates with a final video featuring both Dr. Harris and Dr. Cassoobhoy discussing how “knowledge gives us the power to raise awareness of inequities Black Americans face and to contribute to change that leads to healthier lives.”
Everyday Health is committed to building on this first year of work with more features and opportunities to inform and engage directly with our readers, the Black community, and allies. Black Health Facts is a knowledge movement. It’s not just a moment.
“Our call-to-action is the social sharing of these facts — plain and simple, yet starkly powerful,” says Nan-Kirsten Forte, executive vice president and general manager of Everyday Health Group Consumer. “We ask that you find a Black health fact that resonates with you, and then share it.”
