The suicide rates for Black children ages 5 to 11 has exceeded that of any other ethnic group, according to new research by Dr. Michael Lindsey. He will present this data along with the disparate health outcomes between Blacks and Whites tied to socioeconomic issues, poverty, nutrition, violence, and racism. This webinar will review signs and symptoms of depression, suicide and anxiety in Black children. It will also explore the importance of access to care, particularly school mental health services, as well as preventive measures.
