Healthy Minds Make for a Healthy Community

While behavioral health issues effect people of all races and socioeconomic backgrounds, African Americans are more likely to experience certain factors that lead to these issues, and less likely to seek or receive treatment. In recent years, 12% of people in treatment for substance use disorders identified as African American, compared to 3% of the total San Mateo County population. African Americans are also more likely to experience symptoms of depression than their white counterparts – but half as likely to receive counseling.
