Mental illness, specifically chronic depression hits the black community more often than any other group, but black Americans are much less likely to seek out professional help. Why does this continue to be taboo?
The American Psychiatric Association further states Culturally diverse groups often bare a disproportionately high burden of disability resulting from mental disorders. This disparity does not stem from a greater prevalence rate or severity of illness in African Americans, but from a lack of culturally competent care, and receiving less or poor quality care.
For some disorders, such as schizophrenia and mood disorders, there is a high probability of misdiagnosis because of differences in how African-Americans express symptoms of emotional distress.
All in all, we have a serious problem with mental illness in the black community and our hope through this conversation is to begin a much needed dialogue in hopes of debunking mental illness myths.

Dr. Larry Berkelhammer has lived with several chronic medical conditions since childhood. For decades he endured the frustration of not knowing the causes of his physical problems. Then, well into adulthood, he was diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases and a primary immunodeficiency disease. At the same time, he was told there were no known cures for any of them and that treatment for some would make others worse. A long-time mindfulness practitioner faced with this reality, Dr. Berkelhammer became curious about what practical steps he and others could to do improve health and well-being. He trained with several world leaders in psychooncology, psychophysiology, and psychoneuroimmunology
In Your Own Hands chronicles Dr. Berkelhammer’s personal experiences with his past work as a practicing psychotherapist to give those struggling with chronic illness practical steps to take their health into their own hands, using the techniques of mindfulness and mastery.
Dr. Berkelhammer is now retired and spends his time writing, teaching and serving non-profit organizations that serve people with chronic medial conditions. For more information, please visit www.LarryBerkelhammer.com.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well... maybe not.
The holidays, with all their goodwill and cheer, may incite unpleasant memories and uncomfortable feelings for you. It's often during this time of year when the focus is all about giving, celebrating and togetherness that you may become more acutely aware of the voids in your life. Perhaps you've experienced a recent loss, such as the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a job or an opportunity. Maybe it's not loss but loneliness that you feel, and no matter how many parties you attend or how many people you're around, you still feel disconnected.
If any of this describes you, then you need to tune in today. There is a way to unplug yourself from the dread of the holidays, and my guest, Licensed Psychotherapist, Nettie Jones, is here to help you learn to cope with the voids in your life, particularly during the holidays.
