The Value of Counseling Services
Ramona’s guest today, Chrystal Mullen-Johnson, discusses mental health. As Crystal explains, there is a misunderstanding about mental health in the African American community. Although African Americans experience all types of life stressors, few seek professional help. Most internalize their pain and, consequently, suffer in silence. According to Crystal, African Americans must go beyond spiritually and consider professional services to address personal issues. Crystal is Founder of Strive Counseling Services in Birmingham, Alabama, where she provides therapeutic counselling services. Crystal is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), Private Independent Practitioner (PIP) and Registered Play Therapist (RPT).
