According to Mental Health America, Texas ranks 50th for access to mental health care. This is substantial because Texas is considered one of the most ethnically diverse states, 37.3% Anglo, 36.5% Hispanic, 16.9% African American, 7.5% Asian/Other, and 1.8% Other. Within this subset of diversity, African American youth reportedly are less likely to receive mental health treatment following depressive episodes and other mental health crises. The gap is evident between mental health services and African American youth in particular. Without African American youth having access to health care or mental health intervention, as a community we run the risk of exacerbating the cycle of intergenerational trauma, the school-to-prison pipeline, and upward mobility amongst young African Americans in general. Choose to DO, Inc. intends on filling this access need by taking a proactive approach to mental health and wellness by providing and focusing on social-emotional learning(SEL) opportunities.
