Which Mental Health Messages Will Black Teens Listen To?

A pair of researchers from the University of Missouri-St. Louis have received $45,000 to address the fact that Black college students are least likely to seek mental health help. Sha-Lai Williams and Stephanie Van Stee hope that they can create culturally competent messages and prevention programs that can link Black youth to care.
