#BlackMentalHealthMatters: Coping With Race-based Traumatic Stress

By now we’ve probably all heard about the cases of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and the international protests that followed. I think it’s safe to say that most of us are hurt but not surprised. Their stories are only recent additions to America’s long history of violence against African Americans.  The first viral case of police brutality that I was old enough to actually process was Trayvon Martin in 2012.

Ju (must be from Jackson, MS to understand)… writing this part feels like calling Candy Man in the mirror. And I haven’t even said anything. So all I’m going to do is give y’all the side eye where you don’t verbally say anything, because the side eye says it all. I also read an article about how the…
