In the black community, mental illness is a regular thing just in any other community.  The only difference is that it’s not acknowledged or addressed.  I’ve grown up haw hearing the idioutic saying “black people don’t do that”.  Needless to as an adult, that theory has been shot down.  Since ignorance is bliss, there are so many black men and women that refuse to acknowledge that they have mental issues that should be addressed by professionals.
