Training Title:
Culture Counts: Mental Health Care for African Americans

Clock Hours: 1.5

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Identify strengths of African-Americans in coping with mental illness • Recall traditional coping strategies of African-Americans • List factors that may contribute to disparities that exist in appearance of mental illness and treatment of mental illness among African Americans

Mental Health: Culture, Race and Ethnicity was written as a supplement to Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon General (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [DHHS], 1999). It documents the existence of striking disparities for minorities in mental health services and the underlying knowledge base. Racial and ethnic minorities have less access to mental health services than do whites. They are less likely to receive needed care. When they receive care, it is more likely to be poor in quality. In Chapter 3, the focus is on exploring mental illness among African-Americans and possible contributing factors. Please note that, even though this report was published in 2001, a quick review of available resources on the status of mental health care disparities among African Americans in the more recent past (2008 – 2010) indicates that significant disparities still exist. Difficulties in ferreting out possible causes also still exist.
