Minorities Get Less Help for Depression

World Journal, news report, Posted: Nov 01, 2008

NEW YORK Psychiatric Services has published a report that shows that people from ethnic communities are under served when it comes to treating depression. The World Journal writes that the research was conducted by the Cambridge Health Alliance and three research centers from Harvard University Medical School. According to the study, 60 percent of Caucasians with depression have access to psychiatric services, if they decide to get treatment. Only about 41 percent of African Americans and about one third of Latinos and Asian Americans receive treatment. James Blumenthal, co-author of the report and a Duke University professor, said some psychiatrists are not always able to diagnose depression in minorities.
