BNC Mental Health Resources

BNC’s commitment to telling the truth and covering news in the Black community requires a dedication to complex topics.

From racism to gun violence, our communities are plagued with issues that are difficult to understand and reading news articles about them can trigger emotional responses and trauma. 

With that understanding, we also have a commitment and responsibility to provide the Black community with resources to help. 

In an effort to support our readers and their health, we are listing the following resources.
