Psychological Nigrescence is which describes the stages of Black racial identity development. The theory consists of five stages: pre-encounter, encounter, immersion-emersion, internalization, and internalization-commitment. Each stage involves changes in attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors related to one's racial identity and experiences with racism. The ultimate goal of this process is to achieve a positive racial identity and a sense of commitment to one's racial group. The cycle of psychological Nigrescence refers to a theoretical model of Black identity development, first proposed by William Cross in 1971. It describes a linear progression of stages that Black individuals go through as they develop a positive sense of racial identity and come to understand the impact of racism on their lives. The stages are: Pre-encounter: characterized by a lack of awareness of racial issues and a rejection of one's own Black identity Encounter: marked by a confrontation with the realities of racism and a resulting crisis of identity Immersion/Emersion: involves a process of exploring and embracing one's Black identity Internalization: characterized by a strong sense of racial identity and a commitment to combating racism.

This has resulted in a rise in suicides globally, with reports of increased rates of suicide or suicidal ideation in many countries. The pandemic has also exacerbated existing mental health conditions, such as PTSD, and has created new challenges for those who were already struggling with mental health issues. The economic downturn and job losses have also contributed to the rise in mental health problems.

There are many different psychological theories and approaches, each with their own set of assumptions, concepts, and methods.
