African Americans are often disproportionately represented in many at-risk populations but are also less likely than many racial and ethnic groups to seek help from professional counselors. Rather, they tend to seek help from their pastors. This program will provide information about pastoral beliefs and responses to parishioners' mental health needs and suggest ways for counselor educators to include research findings in their curriculum and build relationships with pastors in their community.
