On Friday, June 7, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC)’s new Taskforce on Black Youth Suicide and Mental Health will convene for a second time in Washington, DC to hear from award winning actress and mental health advocate Taraji P. Henson.

Henson will share her personal perspective on managing mental health challenges, and the benefits of shining light on this topic in Black households.
