We Ain’t Crazy! Just Coping with a Crazy System

Disparities between the provision of mental health services for African Americans and other groups have been identified in a report, We Ain’t Crazy! Just Coping with a Crazy System: Pathways into the Black Population for Eliminating Mental Health Disparities.  

V. Diane Woods, Dr.P.H., director and lead investigator of the California Reducing Disparities project (CRDP) has said that "many African Americans do not receive appropriate mental health services, even when they go to places that are suppose to help them".  

She also stated that many Black people do not know where to go to get their mental health needs addressed - but even when they do, they do not get the help they need.
