NOV 05: Shaunte Proctor & Craig Saunders - Managing Depression

On the next The Dalila Robin Show, join Craig Saunders, Shaunte Proctor, and me for a discussion about depression and how to manage it.

Did you know that several factors have contributed to African Americans not receiving help for bipolar disorder and other mental illnesses?

Some reasons include:
- A mistrust of health professionals, based in part on historically higher-than-average institutionalization of African Americans with mental illness; and on previous mistreatments, like such tragic events as the Tuskegee syphilis study.
- Cultural barriers between many doctors and their patients.
- Twenty-five percent of African Americans do not have health insurance.
