On Thursday 23 April, the NYUL hosted COVID-19 Town Hall: Health and Mental Health in the Black Community.
The conversations are centered around the state of health and mental health in the black community. President of the NYUL, Ms. Arva Rice led the discussion with several speakers including the likes of Pastor Kyndra Frazier is the Lead Innovator (Director) of the HOPE Center, Danielle Belton, Editor-in-Chief of The Root, and Michael A. Lindsey, Executive Director of the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research at New York University (NYU).
In case you missed it, we’re sharing it here. So many great resources for the community.
We went ahead and pulled out a few sound bites (time included) just for you because it is an hour-long video.
(40 min) Pastor Kyndra Frazier of The HOPE Center shares that the center provides 10 FREE sessions of therapy for individuals and couples.
(50 min) Daniel Belton of The Root shares about her struggle with mental health and how the publication is helping the community. (Many years ago, I had the fortunate opportunity to sit down with Danielle to share her journey with bipolar disease.)
NYC WELL created a list of apps (lots with COVID-specific content) that are FREE to use during the pandemic.
