For additional information, readers may also be interested in the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research Program for Research on Black Americans (PRBA). Information can be retrieved from http://www.rcgd.isr.umich.edu/prba/. This program is the preeminent program for the study of Black life in America. They have numerous publications on Black family life (i.e. Family Life in Black America Sage Publications, 1997; Mental Health in Black America Sage Publications, 1996; Life in Black America Sage Publications, 1991). In February 2001, the PRBA mounted a major national psychiatric epidemiologic investigation of mental disorders, The National Survey of American Life (NSAL). This study is the largest investigation of the mental health of African Americans and Caribbeans of African descent ever conducted. Data from the NSAL project permit for the first time the identification of differences between African Americans and blacks from the Caribbean.
