brain.jpgBLACK PR WIRE — Psychologists in more than 20 cities in the United States and around the world launched Emotional Emancipation Circles in connection with the 6th annual celebration of Community Healing Days.

Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles are a culturally grounded, research-based process to help black people overcome the lie of black inferiority and the emotional legacies of enslavement and racism.

Community Healing Days are an annual celebration designed by Community Healing Network (CHN) to put “time for healing” on the black community’s agenda and to serve as a catalyst for the creation of year-round healing initiatives.

This year’s celebration comes as the October edition of the journal Social Science and Medicine releases the results of an international study finding that children “experience poor mental health, depression, and anxiety” as a result of racism.
