For years, the mental health crisis in the Black community has been intensifying, but the stigma of therapy has obstructed access to help, particularly for young Black students. Taraji P. Henson founded the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation (BLHF) to confront this issue and in 2021 came to Edelman to launch a public awareness campaign during Mental Health Awareness month that would empower students to speak out and lower the societal stigma around therapy.
