Abstract:

African-American women have a stigma associated with mental illness causing them to avoid seeking treatment. My evidence-based research focuses on African-American women’s beliefs about depression, barriers to treatment, and their past experiences. My research also identifies coping mechanisms used by African-American women, focusing on ways to help them seek treatment.
