Minority Mental Health: Care and Treatment

There have been several recent high-profile deaths that raise the issue of mental health and illness in the minority community.  Comedian Jak Knight committed suicide just last week.  He was 28 years old.  Former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst committed suicide in January.  She was 30 years old.  As we observe National Minority Mental Health Month, we try to address the questions around this issue.
