I’ve been dreaming about riding across the country on a motorcycle for some time now and I’m not going to let the fear of what could happen to hold me back. Everything will be at https://iconride.org: photos, videos, blog posts, how to donate for the mutual aid fund, and support me along the adventure. I hope you all join me!
African American adults are 20% more likely to experience mental health issues than the rest of the population.
Only 3.7% of members in the American Psychiatric Association and 1.5% of members in the American Psychological Association are Black.
Hispanics and Latinx individuals only make up 18.3% of the population, and of those about 16% have reported a mental illness within the past year – that’s about 10 million people [which is more than the population of New York City].
