Black Women May Be Much Less Likely To Report Suffering From Depression Than White Women.

HealthDay (4/9, Preidt) reports that a study published online April 8 in JAMA Psychiatry suggests that “black women are much less likely to report suffering from depression than white women are.” After culling “responses from more than 1,400 black women and more than 340 white women who took part in a national survey,” researchers found that “only 10 percent of black women reported struggling with the mental health disorder at some point in their lives, compared with 21 percent of white women.”
