Studies show that African American adolescents may be at higher risk for adverse behavioral health outcomes, such as depression, compared to other racial/ethnic minority youth. Additionally, negative characteristics of the urban environment, such as community violence, poverty, and deviant peer groups, may further contribute to adverse outcomes for African American adolescents, particularly those living in public housing settings. This chapter examines mental health interventions and services that might be responsive to the unique mental health challenges faced by African American adolescents in public housing. It outlines current empirical research on this vulnerable population and offers pragmatic solutions which center on how mental health interventions and services might be targeted at the family, community, and school levels to stymie the current of context-induced, untreated mental health needs for African American adolescents living in public housing settings.
