  • African American and Hispanic Americans used mental health services at about one-half the rate of Caucasian Americans in the past year and Asian Americans at about one-third the rate. {2010 National Healthcare Disparities Report]

 

  • "The rates of mental health problems are higher than average for Black women because of psychological factors that result directly from their experience as Black Americans. These experiences include racism, cultural alienation, violence and sexual exploitation." [Black Women’s Health.com]

 

  • "The prevalence of depression in Latino women is higher (46%) than Latino men (19.6%)" [National Alliance of Mental Health]
