During our conversation, Stephanie talked about:

– The story behind the article
– The impact on Black people of media images of Black people people being killed by police
– Some of the reasons why many Blacks under utilize health services
– How does she deal with racial stereotypes
– What can the police do in regards to this issue
– What she has heard about Black peoples attitude to police in her conversations with her
– what can be done to get more Black and Brown psychologists to provide culturally sensitive help to Black and brown people
– The stigma that many Blacks have in dealing with mental illness, trauma
– Her thoughts on the possibility of change in the areas of social and criminal justice and health care system for Black Americans
– Her message to police and the justice system, Black and brown people when it comes to Black people experiencing trauma

After our conversation Ms. Yee added:
