The purpose of this project is to discuss why the stigma of mental illness is still prominent in the black community and who in the black community is at risk. Vulnerable populations are severely affected by mental illness, and this comes from the lack of education, the lack of resources, the lack of medical care and poverty. Mental illness is a hard topic to talk about. The person suffering from mental illness might not know who to turn to or seek help from.
