Britt-Spells, A. M., Slebodnik, M., Sands, L. P., & Rollock, D. (2018). Effects of perceived discrimination on depressive symptoms among black men residing in the United States: A meta-analysis. American journal of men’s health, 12(1), 52-63.
Research reports that perceived discrimination is positively associated with depressive symptoms. The literature is limited when examining this relationship among Black men. This meta-analysis systematically examines the current literature and investigates the relationship of perceived discrimination on depressive symptoms among Black men residing in the United States. Using a random-effects model, study findings indicate a positive association between perceived discrimination and depressive symptoms among Black men ( r = .29). Several potential moderators were also examined in this study; however, there were no significant moderation effects detected. Recommendations and implications for future research and practice are discussed.
