EPISODE 4: Are Black Americans Depressed?
According to the Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, Black adults in the U.S. are more likely than White adults to report persistent symptoms of emotional distress, such as sadness, hopelessness and feeling like everything is an effort. Despite the needs, only one in three Black adults who need mental health care receive it. Book author, Kevin Dedner and his guest, Dr. Harold “Woody” Neighbors discuss the barriers to mental health care, the social stigma associated with receiving treatment, provider bias and inequality of care and treatment options.
