The rise in depression and anxiety in the United States have been triggered by the COVID-19 epidemic and the racial tensions that have occurred in the last year. These tragic events have increased awareness of mental health issues in the Black community. The subject was once considered unpopular.

 Patrice Harris MD psychiatrist is the medical editor of Everyday Health in chief for the entire year. He addresses the stigma associated with mental illness as well as the distrust of the medical system. He also talks about other issues that have prevented Black Americans from getting the proper care. He also focuses on strategies to make mental health just as vital as physical health.

 Stigma, which is a term used to describe negative attitudes, beliefs and beliefs regarding mental health, is extremely common. Dr. Harris says, "I have heard people claim that being afflicted with a mental illness implies that you're a bad person or moral flaw. Perhaps you weren't praying enough." There's no reason to be ashamed to suffer from a mental illness and there's no shame when seeking treatment.

 Black Americans have a history of distrust towards the medical profession. This is evident in 19th-century Gynecologic procedures for enslaved women, the forty-year-long U.S. Public Health Service Siphilis study at Tuskegee and the removal and analysis of the Henrietta Lacks's cervical cells, without her knowledge. The existing socioeconomic and healthcare system inequality is a factor, and so does the absence of diversity in the clinical staff. To improve health outcomes, you must have trust. Harris statesthat "To be trusted , you must be reliable."
