Recent scholarship has highlighted the changing patterns in suicide among Black Americans, noting that black males account for most of those deaths, as well as the recent rise in suicide among black children. The presentation examines the psychiatric health of black males, using a person-in-environment approach, to explore how centering healing as part of social mobility, would results in more efficacious and sustained whole person wellness.
Dr. Sean Joe, PhD is the Benjamin E. Youngdahl Professor of Social Development at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. Sean Joe is a nationally recognized authority on suicidal behavior among Black Americans and is expanding the evidence base for effective practice with Black boys and young men.
