10% of your purchase price will be donated to charities that support mental health for Black men.
A survey commissioned by the Today Show revealed that 49% of men feel more depressed than they are willing to admit to the people in their life.
In the Black community, psychosocial coping, economic status, income, racism, discrimination, and microaggressions are all factors that contribute to even greater depression and depressive symptoms among Black men.
I don’t feel any guilt or shame about seeking mental health help but there have been times in my life when I didn’t even realize I was in mental distress until an external event forced me to become aware of it.
It’s important to always keep your finger on the pulse of what you’re feeling and regular therapy is a great way to do that. I swear by it and I want to be an inspiration to other Black men who are seeking help and trying to level themselves up.
By supporting nonprofits that advocate for Black men’s mental health, I hope to encourage more Black men, to make therapy a consistent part of their health regimen.
