Inside Her Story: Dr. Amber Thornton Talks About Mental Health In The Black Community, June 2018
"Amber Thornton, a psychologist at the counseling center, said minority students can sometimes feel invisible or like their opinions aren't valid.
So an open dialogue where other people are saying "I see this, too" helps validate their feelings, Thornton said.
Thornton said many people wanted to know what to do next, how to help others cope and how to heal the relationship between police and minorities."
"At the OPA Spring Convention in April, a highly informative and enlightening presentation entitled “Black Lives Matter” was given by Tawana Jackson, a fourth year graduate student at Wright State University and Dr. Amber Thornton, a post-doctoral fellow and adjunct professor at Wright State University. The presentation broadened the understanding of the psychological and emotional trauma that many African American males suffer in our society in the wake of deaths by law enforcement officers of unarmed males."
