According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service Office of Minority Health:“Minorities are less likely to receive diagnosis and treatment for their mental illness, have less access to and availability of mental health services, and often receive a poorer quality of mental health care.”Limited access, language barriers, mistrust of healthcare systems, and deep-rooted cultural stigmatization of mental health are just some of the barriers minorities face in receiving quality mental healthcare. 

Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon and her special guest, psychiatrist, Dr. Kim Jones-Fearing as she shares the plight of minorities in dealing with Mental health issues relating to depression, suicide and opioid addiction.
