Description

How much does the presence of Black men in the mental health field affect Black men’s desire to seek mental health services? : A Comprehensive study.

This capstone project offers a thorough analysis of the challenges confronting Black men in the United States as they navigate access to mental health services. It investigates the potential effects of increasing the representation of Black men within the mental health field on their willingness to engage with such resources. Moreover, the researcher explores actionable steps across individual, community, and societal levels to enhance the presence of Black men in mental health professions and to cultivate a supportive environment conducive to Black men’s utilization of mental health services.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to assess the severity of the issue regarding Black men’s reluctance to seek mental health services.
  2. Participants will be able to analyze factors contributing to Black men’s concerns and hesitancy in accessing mental health services.
  3. Participants will be able to propose strategies to address the shortage of Black mental health practitioners and to encourage Black men to engage with mental health services.
