Even Superman gets holes in his cape.
Getting behind the HHI microphone with host Rev. Percy McCray is Rev. Dr. Que English who serves as the Director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and works closely with the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Rev. Dr. English spent time in this interview discussing ongoing concerns of mental, emotional, and physical health threats among people of faith in the African American community.
Having a sister who died from cancer and a family history of mental health challenges, English passionately presents a clarion call for advocacy for health care engagement and interaction. As one who has had to apply health care practices to her own life, English says: “I’m talking to you, because I am one that needed and needs mental health care.”
Push play now to hear a transparent and honest conversation about the collateral damage of not seeking good medical care.
- “I do believe in miracles. At the same time, God has anointed doctors to do just that, specialized in whatever ailment that you’re going through.”
- “As people of faith, and particularly leaders of faith, we’ve gotta make sure that we create that balance in our approach, in our ministry, in our messaging, in our sermons.”
- “I had someone in my house of worship who had faith, but she had faith in knowing that God will help guide the hand of the doctor to do the surgery.”
