Depression’s Peculiar Grip on Black LGBTQs, Part Two

     The second part of the exclusive series I’ve crafted for the Huffington Post has just been published!  The series, entitled“Depression’s Peculiar Grip on Black LGBTQs, Part Two,” explores how depression can have a disproportionate impact on, and different ramifications for Black LGBTQ individuals. 

     In this installment, I discuss in detail exactly how and why depression is so stigmatized in the black community as a whole.  And, it serves as the jumping off point into my first major bout with the disease.

    Wyatt, I have to give you the highest level of praise for your honesty in your writing. The fact you are always willing to share your personal experiences with your readers is truly refreshing.
    I hope you know by doing so you are helping many deal with issues that are often very difficult (as you know) often kept inside and not talked about.

    Keep doing what your doing, your touching many lives!

      Jon: thanks for the great feedback! Like Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse, Depression is often kept confined in the shadows.

    Hey Bryant,
    Thank you for writing about his. As my depression has also made me go to some really sad and lonely places in my mind and at times I was not seeing the light and believing there is no no answer outside of suicide. That is why it is important to write about it and let others know that they are not alone and that they can find other positive ways to deal with things. Can’t wait to read your story next time

      Elk: I trust you’ve gotten help for your depression. Getting help is not a symbol of weakness–it’s a symbol of strength! And, you deserve peace of mind to have quality of life..
