Depression is the leading cause of adult disability and common among sexual and gender minority (SGM) adults. The current study builds on findings showing the effectiveness of depression quality improvement (QI) and delivery of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) skills provided by community health workers in reducing depression. Depression QI approaches across healthcare and social/community services in safety-net settings have shown improvements in mental wellness, mental health quality of life and depression over 12 months. Further, a randomised study showed improved depression among low-income racial/ethnic minorities enrolled in a CBT-informed resiliency class (Building Resilience and Increasing Community Hope (B-RICH)). The current protocol describes a comparativeness effectiveness study to evaluate whether predominantly low-income, SGM racial/ethnic minority adults randomised to a CBT-informed resiliency class have improvements in depressive symptoms over and above community-engaged QI resources and training only.
This study is among the first to examine a model to reduce depression disparities and meet treatment needs among predominantly low-income, racial/ethnic, sexual and gender minorities, an understudied population.
Per our community-partnered discussions, we did not include any identity-based exclusion criteria, which allowed us to recruit participants who identified their sexual, gender and racial/ethnic minority status across a broad spectrum.
Few studies have examined depression rates among racial/ethnic minority SGM people, with some, but not all, suggesting greater rates of depression than racial/ethnic minority heterosexuals.9 For example, one nationally representative study in the USA found higher rates of depression among Asian and Latinx SM respondents, compared with those who were heterosexual.11 In contrast, a study of SM adults in New York City showed higher rates of psychiatric disorders among Latinx and Euro-American adults in comparison to African Americans.18 Heterogeneity of depression prevalence rates among racial/ethnic and sexual minority adults may be due to variations in how sexual minority status is ascertained (eg, sexual behaviour or self-reported identity).9 Little is known about the depression of racial/ethnic minority transgender people, although a few studies suggest rates may be increased in comparison to cisgender racial/ethnic minorities.19 20 More research is needed to understand how depression affects racial/ethnic and sexual and gender minorities.
Little is known about how to address the depression that low-income SGM racial/ethnic-minorities face. Our study is among the first to use an randomised controlled trial to test whether a community health worker-led psychoeducational, resilience-focused intervention can improve depression among sexual, gender and racial/ethnic minorities in comparison to a culturally-adapted QI training. The study has several areas of potential significance. First, this study will provide important data to address a key scientific gap on how to improve depression outcomes for predominantly racial/ethnic SGM adults, especially for HIV-negative SGM groups. These data may inform how medical homes, community-based agencies and social service providers can implement evidence-based depression QI approaches and psychoeducation delivered by community health workers. Furthermore, this study may provide insight into how healthcare providers can best address mental health quality and outcome disparities with patient and community input. Ultimately, patient and stakeholder engagement through partnered research may accelerate science and translation of findings into practice.
In addition to the need to sustain a healthy environment in which students, faculty, and staff can thrive, climate also has an effect on our students after they leave the university. Employers have demonstrated that they value diverse workplace skills. However, simply being part of a diverse environment does not automatically produce these skills. In fact, attention to interaction patterns Page 159 and race/ethnic relations is an important part of the educational process. For example, students who reported that they had negative interactions with diverse peers showed significantly less growth than students who had positive interactions on a host of outcomes necessary for preparation for a diverse workforce during the first two years of college (Locks et al., 2008). 2b1af7f3a8
