MISLED: EPISODE 2 SNEAK PEEK

We’re back! We know it’s been a long time coming, but “Misled” is back with a new episode! Episode 2 of Misled focuses on Mental Health in the African American community. We wanted to shed light on the issue of mental health by discussing the stigma that is associated with many mental health disorders. We hope to educate people about mental health disorders in an effort to negate the negative perception associated with them to reach a broader level of understanding and compassion.
