I don’t think it’s so much that Black women don’t ask for help from their healthcare providers. I think it’s more about the burden they carry and about people around them placing more on top of that burden because the idea is that they’re supposed to be able to handle it.

I’d like to see links to the studies this video alludes to. I’m a clinical psychologist and researcher and we can all agree that the disparities in women’s health are glaring and alarming. And there may be many contributors. Yet the fact that healthcare providers are more likely to be dismissive of black women’s expressed concerns is a much larger factor than the fact that women are simply not asking for help. If that isn’t the case, I’m open to examining additional research. Please link the studies referenced. I think the take away is more about breaking down this stoic, burden-carrying woman and seeing her as a human with human wants, needs, and desires. Black autism mom. I comprehended the rest of the video. I’m specifically addressing the point made about healthcare. For instance, they noted an example about breast cancer being more deadly in black women because we don’t seek treatment for it. Sometimes I think it can be both things.

Doctors may dismiss health concerns of black women and that may make black women feel like they’re making a big deal out of “nothing” and they may not bring it up again in other visits or with other doctors. I actually wrote my dissertation on the aspects of a strong black woman from a research perspective and how it relates to depression and suicide in black women. So glad this is a conversation that is out there! The fact that anyone outside of black women are actually putting their two cents into the conversation about the health and wellbeing of black women is appalling. This is not about you! Do not “all lives matter” this topic. It has nothing to do with you. The fact you think it does or that you have a say in the matter is part of the problem. Let us talk amongst ourselves about healing ourselves and doing what we need to do for ourselves. Your perspective is not needed. When, and if, we do need you, then you can comment. Or how about just being there to let us get off our chest what we need and support us in our effort to heal ourselves.
