C: I wish people would start stressing the importance of more black/POC mental health professionals. After 7 years of battling depression my family finally decided to seek out a counselor for me. My only problem now is damn near every counselor in my area is white. Take that however you want to, but when a portion of your depression deals with your identity as a black female, racism and the struggles you experience because of it, it’s pretty hard to open up to someone who can never relate.
YOU ARE BLACK and just because you can work with and talk to a be around white people doesn’t change that because at the end of the day you are still black and they will hate you just like the rest of us the minute you no longer fit their ideal professional black women steryotypes
