Mental Health & Financial Stress Among Black Men
~ Columbine ~
A history of discrimination and structural oppression prevents many black men from achieving sound financial health. Poor financial health exacerbates the symptoms of depression among black men. The authors offer a strengths-based approach to mediate the impact of poor financial health on depression among black men. Grounded in the black perspective, this multi-faceted approach incorporates financial social work elements, financial literacy, spiritually derived interventions, and mutual aid groups.
