Compared to the majority group and other racial and ethnic populations, African-Americans tend to utilize professional counseling at a much lower rate (Ayalon & Young, 2005). Instead, it has been shown that African-Americans rely on their religion and spirituality to cope when in difficult situations. This presentation specifically looks at the Pastor’s role and experiences as an intervener when faced with mental health needs of the congregation.
