Rates of mental illnesses in Black adults are similar to those of the general population. However, disparities exist in regard to mental health care services. In 2020, only 37.1% of Black adults aged 18 and over received mental health services compared to 51.8% of White adults. Black adults often receive poorer quality of care and lack access to culturally competent care.
The City of Long Beach Black Mental Health Program connects uninsured or underinsured Long Beach Black residents experiencing negative mental and emotional health status to high-quality culturally affirming mental health services.
