Thoughts of Death Can Come from Racial Discrimination, According to a Recent Study

Racial discrimination, whether it’s derogatory language or unequal treatment, impacts communities and individuals in different ways. For children, the effects are sometimes emotional scars, and as a University of Houston researcher discovered, even thoughts of death.

UH psychology professor Rheeda Walker was the lead researcher on the study, “A Longitudinal Study of Racial Discrimination and Risk for Death Ideation in African-American Youth.” It soon will be published in the journal Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior and can be viewed online.
