Black Celebrities With a Mental Illness

Being that it’s minority mental health awareness month, I included this infograph of famous African-American actors, singers, and sports players who or who have fought for their mental health everyday. Some you might recognize, some you might not. The point of this graph is to show mental illness is not just a “white person” issue. It’s an issue that effects us regardless of the color of the skin or the socioeconomic status of our lives.
