BLACK MALE ISSUES

MENTAL HEALTH FOR BLACK MALES 
There's no shame in taking care of your mental health | Sangu Delle

  • Adult Black/African Americans are 20 percent more likely to report serious psychological distress than adult whites. 
  • Adult Black/African Americans living below poverty are three times more likely to report serious psychological distress than those living above poverty.  
  • Adult Black/African Americans are more likely to have feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and worthlessness than are adult whites.

"If we have more providers of color, Black men may feel that their plight is better understood and therapists may better understand the dynamics faced by Black men living in the social and political system of America."
Erlanger A. Turner, Ph.D.
