THE BORIS LAWRENCE HENSON FOUNDATION IS CHANGING THE NARRATIVE ON MENTAL HEALTH

Actor Taraji P. Henson created the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, a nonprofit organization focused on changing the stigma around mental illness in the African American community. The foundation was established in honor of Henson’s late father, who struggled with his mental health after serving in the Vietnam War.
