Access from EThOS:
This review seeks to clarify issues and review evidence on ethnicity and mental health care access as shown in studies over the last five years. The results indicate that access to specialist mental health services remains largely negative and aversive for minority ethnic groups. Barriers to service access are high levels of socio-economic disadvantage, cultural and institutional exclusion as well as cultural attitudes and beliefs towards mental health problems. Methodological limitations, clinical implications are discussed and recommendations for future research are made.
