It’s no surprise that the big and little stresses of life can have a significant impact on your overall health and well-being — no matter who you are. But for Black women, stress and its health effects can be amplified.
While all women face stressors, Linda Goler Blount, President and CEO of the Black Women’s Health Imperative (BWHI) says that “the inequities in the impact of stress on the health and well-being of Black women cannot be ignored. The lived experiences of Black women speak to the overwhelming stress in their lives.”
BWHI has developed an Emotional Wellness Toolkit to be a resource for Black Women dealing with stress. Take our 12 question stress test on this page and you will be able to download the toolkit.
