Using over 7 years of empirical research, this presentation synthesizes findings from qualitative and quantitative studies addressing psychosocial determinants of African American men’s health. A primary focus of the presentation will be on studies linking masculinity to depressive symptoms. Clinical and policy implications will be discussed, as well as, recommendations for setting a strengths-based social scientific agenda to address African American male health disparities.
