Ms. Milner had this to say about the filming of this series. I am so proud of these young women. Unfortunately they have not gotten the recognition for their long hours of work locally. If these were white teens they would be featured on every news channel for their academic accomplishments and this exceptional series. My goal is to break down the stigma of mental health counseling in the African American community and to showcase the talents of our young African American teens.

Dr. Steven Kniffley Jr discusses Mental Health among African American Male teens Part 1
