BLACK MENTAL HEALTH
To reach out to the world views about the reality, lies and myth on mental illness in the Rastafarians movement. We will expose the cutural background and origin of Rastafarians and prove that misconception are more related to black people then the Rastafari faith. As per Frederick W. Hickling said, ‘This negative view deserve to be challenged because it reflects a misunderstanding of the group and promotes the false idea that Rastafari beliefs are more unusual or deviant than the concepts of other religious movements. Notwithstanding these differing views, we wish to emphasize that Rastafari, like Christians, Muslims, or members of any other religious group, are capable of experiencing mental illness”.
