It is our pleasure to have you visit with us as we describe our efforts in this journey to mental health for African American/Black and racially diverse youth and families.  Visit with us to learn more about our work and don’t forget to read our “What’s Up with AAKOMA?” blog.  Our Mission and Vision…

Mission: The AAKOMA (African American Knowledge Optimized for Mindfully Healthy Adolescents) Project addresses the depression and other mental health needs of African American and youth of color by developing and implementing rigorous, culturally relevant, patient centered, community-engaged research and clinical care.

Vision: With our mission in mind, we utilize the methodologies of Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) and traditional behavioral clinical trials to develop culturally relevant interventions that inform:

  1. The public about the unique mental health needs of African American and racially diverse youth (especially in the areas of depression and treatment engagement)
  2. The mental health field about the unique perspectives of African American and racially diverse families regarding depression, treatment engagement and mental health disparities.

You can reach out to us for more information via the contact box below.
