How Older Black Adults Experience Stress and Anxiety

12/7/2021; 23 minutes

Most research studies don't consider how different races perceive the stressfulness of stress exposure. This has led to a paradox among mental and physical health outcomes that show whites report more instances of stress and depression, yet people of color have higher rates of stress-related illnesses such as hypertension. Indeed, racial/ethnic minorities have more disabilities, a greater number of chronic conditions, and age faster than other populations. Lauren Brown, PhD, discusses the unique stress experience of older black adults and explores how race-based discrimination, lower incomes, and poor education impact long term aging.
