Handbook of Mental Health in African American Youth (EPUB)



Alfiee M. Breland-NobleAlfiee M. Breland-Noble

​This Handbook examines the diagnosis and prevalence of as well as the standards for evidence-based mental health care for African American youth. It fills a significant gap in the literature by addressing such issues as the frequency and associated disparities of mental illness among African American youth; the use of culturally relevant approaches to treating mental illness within this population; and the infrastructure and mechanisms needed to best care for these children and adolescents. Its coverage spans issues of epidemiology, etiology, research, and treatment of African American youth across the socioeconomic spectrum and for major illnesses like ADHD, depression, and generalized anxiety disorder, particularly in the context of the recently released DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition). This Handbook is a must-have resource for researchers, professors, graduate students as well as clinicians and other related professionals across such disciplines as clinical child and school psychology, family studies, educational psychology as well as such related areas as social work and public health.​
