For many Black students, school can trigger an enormous number of mental health problems. Activist-actress Taraji P. Henson says this is what motivated her to create The Unspoken Curriculum, an initiative to empower Black students to discuss mental health issues and their experiences in the classroom, reports People.com. Active until June 21, the initiative was formed as part of The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, her mental health nonprofit. It features talks with mental health experts and chat rooms where student conversations are moderated by therapists and educators.
