LOUISVILLE, Ky. (FOX 56) – A missing Kentucky activist’s parents say he could be having a mental breakdown.
Quintez Brown, a University of Louisville student, was last seen Saturday near Louisville’s Algonquin park. He is a racial justice advocate.
Therapists who followed last year’s demonstrations say it’s common for activists to develop symptoms of depression.
“I would definitely say that we’ve seen a lot of depression, anxiety, insomnia. We are also seeing race battle fatigue which comes from fighting, getting a lot of negative feedback, feeling like there’s not a lot of change in a certain amount of time,” says Millicent Cahoon with Therapists for Protester Wellness.
Brown is 20 years old, 5 foot 10 inches tall, and 180 pounds. Louisville police say he recently shaved his head and his beard. He could be driving a blue Nissan Sentra.
