In America, discussions about mental health are evolving. In the aftermath of Covid-19, there is a growing mental health crisis. The pandemic’s “long tail” is forcing the country to deal with an increased demand for mental health services. Parallel to this is a burgeoning racial awakening, recognizing that racism is a public mental health crisis. At the epicenter of this perfect storm? Communities of color who are underserved in terms of mental health. Dr. Angela Swain offers lifestyle practices the Christian community can adopt to help quell this perfect storm.
