Taraji P. Hen­son cel­e­brated her new non­profit, which is named in honor of the “Em­pire” star’s dad and ded­i­cated to eras­ing the stigma sur­round­ing men­tal health is­sues, es­pe­cially in the African-amer­i­can com­mu­nity. “We are as sick as our se­crets, and it’s time for peo­ple to come to­gether, to reach out to those who are hid­ing in dark rooms, reach out to those who are afraid to take the next step, reach out to those who want to be bet­ter and don’t know how to,” said Hen­son’s friend and “Black-ish” star Jenifer Lewis.
