Men of some minority races are statistically less likely seek help for their mental health than women and Caucasians, a 2015 study shows.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), only 6.6 percent of black men report having sought mental health services compared to 11.3 percent of their white counterparts and 10.3 percent of black women. However, 18.6 percent of black adults report having struggled with their mental health, as do 19.3 percent of white adults.
