About Black Mental Health Matters
The BMHM (Black Mental Health Matters) web series is an attempt to bring people of color together in an effort to de-stigmatize the mental health issues surrounding the African-American community. These episodes were created by Leon Burns who was inspired to take on this venture after learning about several mental illnesses that had touched my close friends and family. This led him to believe that there was an incredibly serious issue that would never be brought to life. As a culture, we as African-American seldom disclose the issues that we’ve overcome after years of being accustomed to a socioeconomic disadvantage.
