African Americans and Mental Health

We’re talking COVID-19, mental health, and suicide prevention this week on WCLK's The Local Take. I reached out to Roland Boehm from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).  Over the last year, it seems many of us have been on a roller coaster of emotions: depression, anxiety, and more.  Consumption of alcohol was rising, and concerns about abusive relationships during the lockdown have been top of mind. Suicide ideation in young people was said to increase during this time.
