Negative sociopolitical experiences, including racism, discrimination, and sexism, put Black and African descent women at risk for low-income jobs, multiple role strain, and health problems, all of which are associated with the onset of mental illness.
Black women and girls face unique challenges throughout navigating life. Unpacking the trauma of pressure from Western societal norms as a Black woman needs to be holistically taught by the people impacted.
Mental health is a state of well-being in which a girl can cope with the normal stresses of life, participate effectively in activities like school, and contribute to her community.
