This talk will focus on examining depressive symptoms among Black autistic youth and addressing issues in mental health help-seeking for Black autistic youth. There is very limited research on the mental health experiences of Black autistic youth specifically in the areas of depression and anxiety. The lack of research is surprising given that data shows that autistic youth in general tend to have greater rates of depression than their non-autistic peers. Given that Black youth are at increased risk of experiencing depression and depressive symptoms, and autistic youth similarly are more likely to experience depression, it can be assumed that Black autistic youth are uniquely vulnerable to depression or depressive symptoms.
