Depression is very common in African young adults and older people more than we think. However, the issue is not often discussed in our African communities appropriately and this makes it difficult to identify the issue or for one to seeking help and support at the right time. Behind The Mirror serves as awareness campaign which can point victims to the right direction.
In this day and age young black men and women have high risks of depression which can be triggered by different factors such as peer groups, friendship, relationships, social media, ethnicity, money, religion just to name a few. Older people also can feel the heat when things such as family, immigration, money, work among others things are not working out the right way.
