The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health: Navigate an Unequal System, Learn Tools for Emotional Wellness, and Get the Help You Deserve, by Rheeda Walker


This book acts a good resource and starting off point for mental health within the black community and introduces the conversation very well. You can tell, at least initially, that the author put a lot of research into this and provided readers with the references of where the information came from. However, this book was geared more towards black women with families/ women from Baptist - Protestant faith. It starts of as mental health focused then transitions towards using your religious faith in conjecture with licensed mental health workers. 

As a social worker/ therapist, it provided insight and tools to better assist black women with families from a religious background. BUT, the description and title is a bit misleading and needs to say who the book is ACTUALLY geared towards.

Now I did take alot out of this such as being INTENTIONAL in embracing my culture and seeking experiences and community that affirms who I am as a black woman in America when so much in this country tries to tell us differently.
