As I was scrolling my social media page this morning, I ran across something interesting. I saw a post that read, "Black girl, it's okay to seek therapy". I didn't see many responses back to the author of the post, but it made me reflect on my profession and community as a whole.
As a Life Coach, on average, I see LESS Black clients than any other race. I also see more women than men. I have acquaintances who are also Black Mental Health professionals and share this same conundrum.
So why as a community do "we" Black people NOT seek counseling, therapy, life coaching, etc? Is it perhaps not just a "Black" thing, but a human thing? Who do you think seeks professional help more? Men or women, and why?
Weigh in #movers. I want to know your thoughts on this..
