Unveiling Misdiagnosis:
Mental Health Disorders in Black Children

This training delves into the critical issue of the prevalence and consequences of misdiagnosis of mental health disorders among Black children. The misdiagnosis is often exacerbated by a range of factors, including both explicit and implicit biases held by clinicians. Additionally, issues such as historical medical mistreatment leading to a lack of trust, communication barriers like African American Vernacular English, and clinicians' unfamiliarity with cultural norms and expressions further contribute to this problem.

The ramifications of misdiagnosis have profound effects on the mental health outcomes and treatment plans for Black children. This underscores the urgent necessity for the development and implementation of culturally competent assessment and diagnostic protocols. Addressing this pressing need is vital for ensuring accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and improved mental health outcomes for Black children, ultimately striving for equity and inclusivity in mental health care.
