Discrimination contributes to depression in black men

Discrimination contributes to depression in black men
November 16, 2017

Daily discrimination was independently associated with depression among black men.

“Few studies have focused on African-American men to identify risk and protective factors for psychological well-being, particularly depressive symptoms. However, there is a growing body of evidence demonstrating the role of factors such as socioeconomic status, social stressors (including discrimination), and psychosocial coping resources for depressive symptoms among African-American men,” Mathew D. Gayman, PhD, of Georgia State University, Atlanta, and colleagues wrote. “Collectively, these factors constitute what stress process researchers recognize as key risk and protective factors for health and health inequalities.”
