MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- As September comes to a close, so does Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. One book is aiming to promote mental health awareness well after the month is over.

Local author Ebony Lewis wrote "Dear Black Boy: It's OK to Cry" to help bring increased attention to mental health, particularly within the African-American community. She joined us on Tuesday, Sept. 27 to discuss the book, one she says is not necessarily for boys, but rather for parents, community leaders along with young members of the community.

Her goal is to promote being comfortable being vulnerable, embracing emotions and seeking help when it is needed.

More information about her book, including the option to order a signed copy, can be found online.
