Lee Thompson Young

The suicide of TNT's Rizzoli & Isles Lee Thompson Young last summer was another reminder that the mental health of Black men can no longer be ignored. Young suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says suicide is the third cause of death among African-American males between ages 15 and 24, behind homicide and accidents.
