The most recent episode of “Queen Sugar” normalized the idea of black women seeking help for mental health issues in the most subtle, but powerful way yet.A study on black women’s beliefs about mental illness in the National Center for Biotechnology Information stated that even though black women struggle with mental illness, “their use of mental health services is low.”There is still an active mythos of ‘the strong black woman,’ who is supposed to be strong and present and capable for everyone in her family – and neglects her own needs, said Monica Coleman, a professor of Constructive Theology and African American Religions at Claremont School of Theology, in an interview with Raymond DePaulo, Jr.According to the study, black women thought that they were not susceptible to depression and “they believed that an individual develops depression due to having a ‘weak mind, poor health, a troubled spirit, and lack of self-love’.”

But it lacked one key thing, according to three recent court rulings: the legal authority to actually prosecute anyone.That has potentially put dozens of convictions in jeopardy and threatens to undermine the mission of the agency, known as the Justice Center, to protect the 1 million disabled, addicted and mentally ill in state care.
