Thank you for using your platform to help fight this stigma on mental health! #Repost @tarajiphenson with @get_repost ・・・ 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾💋💋💋 #Repost @iamjessiemiles ・・・ @tarajiphenson got emotional while speaking in front of congress on mental health! @blhensonfoundation Photos: @gettyimages⠀ Taraji P. Henson got emotional as she testified before Congress on Friday about the need for mental health counselors and education, especially in the black community, in wake of a rise in suicides of young people. The Empire star, who has an adult son, also talked about her own battle with depression and anxiety, which she has been open about, as she spoke before the Congressional Black Caucus Emergency Taskforce on Black Youth Suicide and Mental Health. "I really don't know how to fix this problem, I just know that the suicide rate is rising," she said. "I just know that ages of the children that are committing suicide are getting younger and younger." A study published in JAMA Pediatrics earlier this year showed that between 2007 and 2015, annual ER visits relating to suicide by people aged 5 to 18 rose from 2.2 percent to 3.5 percent, and from 580,000 to 1.2 million. "It breaks my heart to know that 5-year-old children are contemplating life and death," Henson said. "I just...I'm sorry. That one is tough for me. So I'm here to appeal to you, because this is a national crisis. When I hear of kids going into bathrooms, cutting themselves, you're supposed to feel safe in school." "I'm here using my celebrity, using my voice, to put a face to this because I also suffer from depression and anxiety," she continued. "And if you're a human living in today's world, I don't know how you're not suffering in any way, I mean if you turn on the news, that's PTSD right there. We need each other. This is me reaching across the table, trying to lend a helping hand in the best way I can. We have to save the children." • • • #producers #music #hiphop #rap #beats #producer #soundcloud #trap #musicproducer #dj #artist #studio #beatmaker #djs #rapper #rappers #producerlife #flstudio #rnb #instrumental #musicproduction #trapmusic #beat #instrumentals #studiolife #atlanta #newmusic #mixtape

“You may not always have a comfortable life. And you will not always be able to solve all the world’s problems at once. But don’t ever underestimate the impact you can have, because history has shown us that courage can be contagious, and hope can take on a life of its own.” Michelle Obama • • Thank you @essence for this feature and for highlighting all of these beautiful women & the amazing things they are doing in this industry! ✨ #Essence #EssenceTech #WomenInTech • • #MelissaBradley #KimberlyWilson #DemetriaGallagher #CharreahJackson
