Speaks Out About Black Trauma
In HuffPost Black Voices Video
"Self-Care In Times of Black Trauma" 

"All that is required for the triumph of evil is that good men remain silent and do nothing." Edmund Burke.

With the recent deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police officers, the Dallas shootings, and the growing racial divide within the country, it's more important than ever for our communities to care for our mental health.

According to Mental Health Advocate Terrie M. Williams, "To begin the healing process, we must be honest and candid in our discussions about race relations in America.  We, as a nation, MUST begin to peel off our layers. People of color are TRAUMATIZED AND FLATLINING...spiritually, mentally and emotionally. We can't afford to remain silent.Together, we must share our journey in order to facilitate healing. We have the power to make a difference and change the hearts and minds of the indifferent.  
Healing Starts With Us Now! 
We Matter...Black Lives Matter".
Terrie  and other notable opinion-makers came together to discuss the psychological impact of police shootings on African Americans and the need to practice self care.  
Terrie,  author of the critically acclaimed book, Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We're Not Hurting, was recently featured on a video segment forHuffPost Black Voices entitled "Self-Care in Times of Black Trauma", where she offered her expertise on how violence disproportionately affects African Americans' mental health and highlighted ways to practice self-care.
