This is the first international handbook on Black community mentalhealth, focussing on key issues including stereotypes in mental health,misdiagnoses, and inequalities/discrimination around access, services andprovisions. Making use of a cultural competence framework throughout, the bookcovers many of the classic mental health/developmental areas such asschizophrenia, mental health disorders, ASD and ADHD, but it also looks at morecontroversial areas in mental health, like inequalities, racism and discriminationboth in practice and in graduate school training and the supervisoryexperiences of black students in universities.

Unique among traditional academic texts addressing mental health, thebook presents rich personal accounts from Black therapists and students. Many Black students who are training to become therapists or academics inmental health report negative experiences with white university staff in termsof a lack of support, encouragement, resulting in poor graduation outcomes.While institutional racism is a major issue both in society and universities,the editors of this Handbook take personal-level racism, microaggression andeveryday racism as better models for understanding and analysing both thesestudents' racialised interaction/communication experiences with white staff atuniversity, as well as the racialised communications and inequalities inmisdiagnoses, access to services and provisions in healthcare settings withwhite managers.
