CWRU to host the Road To Recovery Mental Health Forum

On Monday, April 9, Case Western Reserve University will host The Road To Recovery Mental Health Forum, “Black Pain: It Only Looks Like We’re Not Hurting.” Organizers of the event hope to address the impact of undiagnosed and untreated mental illness within the African-American community and help demystify the stigma associated with mental illness.

The event, which begins at 4 p.m. in the Wolstein Research Building, is sponsored by the Social Justice Institute and the School of Medicine’s Master of Public Health Program Innovations Conference.

Terrie Williams, president of The Terrie Williams Public Relations Agency and The Stay Strong Foundation, will serve as the keynote speaker. The forum also will offer community education on the importance of proper diagnosis and the availability of resources and organizations providing treatment for mental illness.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information visit
