Africa House Sacramento presents “Dancing with the Blues: Prevention and Management of  Depression and Suicide Among Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults”

Since the COVID-19 pandemic shook the world in 2020, depression and suicide have been at an all-time high. This has especially been the case for children, adolescents, and young adults of the African Diaspora. As we attempt to find a sense of normalcy in this new world, we must acknowledge and learn about these struggles and unique effects, along with strategies as well as techniques for prevention and management, especially among the Black youth.
