minority stress

minority 1

Do you feel singled out or underestimated because of your race, culture, gender, or identity status? Do people make pre-judgments about your personality or ability based on your appearance? Have you been victimized due to your minority status? Do these difficult experiences weigh heavily on you, affecting your mood, and coping strategies, even interfering with opportunities to get ahead?

Minority stress is a very real issue that significantly impacts members of minority groups on a daily basis. Interpersonal prejudice and discrimination based on race, culture, or identity are some of the main causes of minority stress. Poor social support systems, low socioeconomic status, and our political atmosphere cause minority individuals to experience high levels of stress. Examples of minority groups who may be likely to experience minority stress include:
  • Racial Minorities
  • Immigrants
  • Women
  • Differently-able Individuals
  • LGBTQIA+ community
