Mental Health Awareness: Dr. Chanda Reynolds talks generational trauma, PTSD

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and it is a topic BNC will revisit throughout the next four weeks. Mental Health Clinician Dr. Chanda Reynolds joined “Start Your Day” with Sharon Reed and Mike Hill to discuss the impact of mental health on a person’s everyday life and generational trauma. She said being Black in America is traumatic and cited a study on ancestral trauma. Reynolds said when the Black community witnesses murders of Black people, they can become traumatized by watching someone else’s trauma. To combat this, she said people should check in with themselves and know when to take breaks from social media.
