The "Silent" Disease: Depression in the African American community

play button.gif

Depression is a severe mental illness. Left untreated it can have disastrous consequences. Latisha James, the Director of Community Partnerships at Case Western Reserve University, explains how within the African American community depression is particularly underdiagnosed and misdiagnosed. James has made increasing the awareness of depression a personal passion and professional responsibility. This discussion touches on community programs such as the lecture by Terrie Williams and the recent cuts to public health programs.

An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that
you ought to write more about this topic, it may not be a taboo
matter but usually people do not talk about these issues.
To the next! Many thanks!!
