"In summary, African American Children and Mental Health is a welcome contribution to the literature in psychology, and it offers a balanced examination split into areas of progress and areas in need of improvement. Compared with other books, this book identifies unique mental health issues in today's African American youths within a multisystems approach, and it cites a number of factors ranging from the individual (i.e., genetics, race), to the social (i.e., family, education, peers, religion), and to the cultural–historical (i.e., oppression, racial profiling, economic stratification). Scholars and students across a variety of disciplines will appreciate the book for its distinctive integration of theory, research, social policy, and practice."
