Abstract

Research on life stress can make a valuable contribution to the field of mental health in South Africa. Blacks in South Africa have borne a disproportionate share of hardship due to the history of racially oppressive policies in that country. Apartheid has been brought to an official end. However, the residual effects of apartheid are clearly reflected in the current social conditions and stressful circumstances that threaten the wellbeing of Black South Africans. Yet, very little is known about Black South Africans' experiences of stress and their resources for coping and thriving under difficult conditions.
