Counselling Outline Paper: Write an outline for a research paper that explores the stigmatization of Black Americans in seeking counselling-based help.
Thesis: Seeking self-help should be important in the African American community; however, very little research has been done to show why many are hesitant to receive treatment. This research paper will provide an overview of the stigma associated with seeking counselling, the tools that African Americans can use to move forward in seeking help and the effects of the black church when it relates to mental health.
