African American young adults who have depression often suffer alone and lack the support and resources to manage their condition. In recent article in Ebony magazine discussing these issues, HealthExperiencesUSA.org is highlighted as a powerful resource that can help everyone better understand depression in diverse young adults.
"An international movement is underway to provide a scientifically sound way to share health experiences. The first informational resource, Health Experiences USA, methodically categorizes dozens of first-person stories from diverse young adults, including African-Americans, who bravely bust through bias to help friends and family, caregivers and sufferers, understand the disease and better manage day-to-day."
HealthExperiencesUSA.org was launched through the Health Experiences Research Network in 2014, which includes Drs. Nancy Pandhi and Rachel Grob in the UW Department of Family Medicine & Community Health.
