Taraji P. Henson honors late father with new foundation to fight mental health issues in Black community

By Paula Rogo,

Taraji P. Henson has launched a new foundation in honor of her late father to fight the stigma and bring awareness to mental health issues within the African-American community.

The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation (BLHF), named after her late father, will partner with other organizations who offer mental health services in order to provide education and even services within the prison system.

For Henson, this is all in honor of the life and struggle that her father, a Vietnam war veteran, endured.
