About this Event

Tennessee State University's College of Public Service invites you to attend their 2020 Black History Month event - Can We Talk? Black Mental Health Matters. As documented by the U.S. Surgeon General’s Report on Mental Health, racial and ethnic minorities have less access to mental health services than white people, are less likely to receive needed care, and are more likely to receive poor-quality care when they are treated. Join us for an exclusive screening of WTF is Mental Health? and JUMP. These two films were created by actor and filmmaker Kofi Siriboe, who stars in Queen Sugar and Girls Trip, and provide a powerful plea that black mental health matters.

A group of distinguished panelists (listed below) will react to the film and the topic of mental health in the African-American community. The event will conclude with Q&A from audience members.

In order to ensure sufficient refreshments are available, please RSVP if you plan to attend this event.

Please direct any questions about this event to Dr. Anthony Campbell, mcampb13@tnstate.edu or 615.963.7098
