    The Mental Illness Taboo in The Black Community

    in Health

    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.
