Black Women and Depression
Temporary periods of sadness, worry and nervousness are normal, but what about when those feelings won’t go away? Too often, women of color try to muscle their way through. Women are more likely to experience an episode of major depression than men. And, compared to their white counterparts, black women are less likely to seek help.  Dr. Jessica Clemons, a psychiatrist from H+H/Elmhurst, will facilitate an important discussion on depression. All are welcome.
