Mental Health and Black Communities

Listen to this Radio Times episode about mental health and Black communities.


African Americans are more likely to report mental health issues but are less likely to seek treatment. Racism, stigmatization, access, distrust of medical institutions, and cultural differences are some of the barriers that prevent African Americans from getting help when they are struggling with mental illness. Our guests are Philadelphia psychiatrists DELANE CASIANO and KARRIEM SALAAM, who are co-authors of the book, Mind Matters: A Resource Guide to Psychiatry for Black Communities and HOWARD STEVENSON, professor of Urban Education, and Africana Studies, and former Chair of the Applied Psychology and Human Development Division in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
