Mental health is just as important, so why aren't we talking about it? Let's have an honest discussion about mental health in the Black community: the stigmas, taboos and things that stop us from being able to access it.

Join this lively discussion which will feature CYN staff and tips on creating better mental health & well-being practices.

Friday 26th February*, 6pm-7:30pm

*Please note we have had to postpone this panel discussion from 19th Feb to the 26th Feb, due to illness.
