i won (2nd place)!!!
in the National Conference for Black Studies essay contest of 2013 with my paper on “The Racial Disparities in Diagnosing and Treating Mental Health Disorders” !!!
I will examine the racialized misdiagnosis of mental health disorders among children of color and how these medical errors are driven by racist assumptions and stereotypes about the development of children of color.
My research will concentrate on the racial disparities found within educational and medical services that fail to provide adequate access and resources for children of color misdiagnosed with a mental health disorder.
This paper will expose the reality of how and why children of color are overrepresented in mental health disorder diagnoses and special education, an issue that is a direct consequence of racialized assumptions about the child development and learning styles among children of color.
