Why are African-Americans 20-30% less likely to return for follow-up care?

SHAR Inc. and Changing Lives and Staying Sober have partnered to lead a one-year discovery and planning process to answer one important question: Why are African-Americans 20-30% less likely to return for follow-up care?

This research effort is designed to uncover the spectrum of barriers African Americans have to accessing behavioral health follow-up care in their community. We are reaching out to our stakeholders (African-American residents, others with lived experiences, health plans, substance use and mental health agencies, non-profits, hospitals, and other community groups) to help us get the answers we need in order to create a solution.

 

We are no longer looking for any survey responses and instead are looking for participants for one of our interviews or focus groups. Use this link to schedule a time to have a confidential interview or focus group to help us learn more about racial disparities in care for individuals that struggle with substance use and mental health. Go to umich.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3l9ekLoadgsI4uy to schedule a time to have your voice be heard on this matter!

(This is only valid for individuals in Wayne County Michigan, that have experience with substance abuse or mental health issues, have a family member that struggles with this, or works in a facility that helps individuals with substance abuse and mental health issues.)
