This study examined African-American parishioners' willingness to seek mental health services through a church-based counseling center as well as African-American ministers' receptivity to collaborate with psychologists. The participants consisted of 550 parishioners of two predominately African-American congregations and 40 African-American ministers on ministerial staff at three predominantly African-American churches. The Personal Life Events Questionnaire, developed by Brooks and Rawles (2005), and the African American Ministers Consultation and Collaboration with Psychologists: A Questionnaire, an instrument adapted by Brooks, Seymore, and Johnson (2005), were administered.
