Study Looking at the Impact of Discrimination on Mental Health in Adults Needs Volunteers!

Study Looking at the Impact of Discrimination on Mental Health in Adults Needs Volunteers!

Overview

DID YOU KNOW?... Over half of Black people report facing recent discrimination, with many stating that it occurs on a weekly basis. Perceived discrimination has been linked to social impairments such as, poor social relatedness, maladaptive social adjustment and difficulties building friendships. Black individuals with severe mental illness may be even more vulnerable to these types of effects.

That is why researchers at Indiana University are looking for adults to take part in a study on assessing discrimination in people with and without serious mental illness.
 
Your participation will help researchers examine pathways in which discrimination can impact Black and White populations and determine how stigma and discrimination intersect with severe mental illnesses (e.g., schizophrenia, schizoaffective, and bipolar disorder).
