Research delineates inadequate mental health services, disparities, and premature treatment termination for African Americans (Avent & Cashwell, 2009; Leong, 2011). Research also points to Black clergy as the support that African Americans access instead of mental health professionals (Allen, Davey & Davey, 2009). This presentation details how the Black church and mental health agencies can engage collaboratively to advocate for culturally sensitive care for African American clients.
