Break the Silence, Break the Cycle

Taraji P. Henson is an Academy Award nominee, a Golden Globe winner, and the star of the award-winning film Hidden Figures and Fox’s hit drama Empire. Beyond her accomplishments as an actor, writer, and producer, she’s a vocal advocate for mental health. In 2018, Henson founded The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation to destigmatize mental illness in the African American community, provide mental health support in urban schools, and increase the number of culturally competent therapists in the field. 

In conversation with Deran Young, the founder of Black Therapists Rock, Henson will discuss the personal experiences with mental health and therapy that led her to create the foundation she named after her father, as well as her fight to help others in the African American community break the silence around mental illness and get access to the healing they need.
