I premiered my ” Medical Spotlight” series yesterday because I wanted to shed some light on many health issues facing us today but I am now compelled to bring to light on mental health disorders particularly those plaguing African Americans during this great time of need in the faced of repeated bouts of “witnessed” of police brutality. As I sit down to write this another black male is slain by a police officer sworn to protect him. It's not even 24 hours after witnessing the execution style murder of Alton Sterling. Starting next week I am going to write a five part series along with my wife, a certified/licensed mental health and grief counselor and we hope to touch on all the bases & break it down as clear as we can for the readers.

Topics to be discussed (not this particular order)

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Adjustment Disorder
  • Panic Attacks
  • Post traumatic Stress Disorder

Stay tuned.
