MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVES

In the black community, there is a negative stigma surrounding mental health. Instead of seeking professional help for conditions such as depression and anxiety, many in the community resort to self-medication (drugs, opioids, alcohol, etc.) or isolation in an attempt to solve their problems on their own. This issue of masking pain is especially prevalent amongst black men.

Partnering with Somerset West Community Health Centre, ACAO has been delivery on our mandate to ensure total health, including mental health for the people of African descent in the National Capital Region.
